Showing their determination to repeat as World Series champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers will send their fourth Cy Young Award winner to the mound this season when they host the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.

Max Scherzer, acquired from the Washington Nationals last week along with infielder Trea Turner, is now on a team that already has had fellow Cy Young winners Clayton Kershaw, David Price and Trevor Bauer pitch this season. Bauer is on administrative leave following sexual assault allegations, and his time with the club appears to be in jeopardy.

Scherzer effectively takes over Bauer's role as a dependable right-hander who has the ability to dominate offenses. He also comes with World Series experience, having won a title with the Nationals in 2019.
