Max Scherzer is a free agent at the end of the 2021 season, but he dropped a pretty big hint Sunday that he might want to stay with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Scherzer collected his 3,000th career strikeout in Sunday’s start, an eight-inning, one-hit gem against the San Diego Padres. After the game, he said he hoped to be present to see Dodgers teammate Clayton Kershaw collect his 3,000th career strikeout as well.
