Corey Kluber faces Max Scherzer in Yanks-Nats matchup

New York Yankees right-hander Corey Kluber continues his attempt at a career renaissance when the three-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner toes the rubber against Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer on Saturday afternoon.

Kluber (2-2, 3.03 ERA), arrived in New York on a one-year, $11 million deal two seasons removed from his last All-Star campaign.

After a slow start to 2021, the 35-year-old veteran has improved upon his previous performances in each of his past three outings, lowering his ERA more than three runs in the process.
