Scherzer will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Orioles on Thursday, MLive.com reports.
This was little more than a formality, because, as manager Brad Ausmus said simply, Scherzer "has been our best pitcher." The 30-year-old followed up his 2013 AL Cy Young campaign by posting a 3.15 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 252 strikeouts over 33 starts (220.1 innings) for the Tigers this season. He'll be followed by Justin Verlander in Game 2 and David Price in Game 3.
