(AP) — Max Scherzer spent the final weeks of the regular season dealing with injuries, but Jim Leyland has proclaimed that his right-hander is healthy and ready to go.

The Detroit Tigers manager is hoping to see another strong outing from Scherzer as his team tries again to close out the Oakland Athletics in Game 4 of their AL division series Wednesday night.

Scherzer lasted only two innings in his previous matchup with Oakland on Sept. 18 because of fatigue in his right shoulder. He went five innings in a loss to Minnesota five days later, but missed his next scheduled start because of that ailment.

Scherzer also hurt his right ankle while celebrating Detroit’s AL Central title on Oct. 1 but managed to pitch four scoreless innings two days later in Kansas City.
