Max Scherzer took the loss Monday after allowing two runs on nine hits and three walks with just four strikeouts over seven innings to the Yankees in New York.
Last year's AL CY Young award winner saw his streak of appearances without a loss snapped at seven games with Monday's defeat, which was his first loss since June 17. Despite the loss, Scherzer who is 13-4 in 23 starts this season, recorded his eighth consecutive quality start after having been lit up for 10 runs by the Royals in his previous defeat.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tyler Johnson (ankle) was a limited in Tuesday's practice.
The news of Johnson being limited should not (yet) have an effect on fantasy teams. Johnson has a career game on Monday, scoring 26 points against the Suns but managed to tweak his ankle in the process. He's worth keeping an eye on and if he is able to string together a few more solid performances, Johnson could be worth a prospective add. Analysis: Keith Tro
