Fantasy Baseball: Sunday's Top Performers

Someone apparently told Max Scherzer that it was time to pitch well after his return from AAA on Sunday. Despite only getting 17 outs total (5 2/3 innings pitched), he struck out 14 batters and allowed no runs. I'm pretty sure this was a lot more of what the Tigers were looking for when they traded for him. Of a small concern is the fact that it took him 113 pitches to get that many outs, since he also walked 4 batters.
