Max Scherzer Returns To Pitch For Tigers After Brother's Death

Everyone has their own way of dealing with a personal tragedy. No one would blame Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer for taking some time off following the death of his brother just a few days ago. Instead, he'll be back on the mound Saturday afternoon against the Pirates, reports Lynn Henning of the Detroit News. According to a tweet sent by Scott Miller of CBS Sports, Scherzer's brother took his own life.

Prayers for Max Scherzer & his family. Scherzer pitching for ‪#Tigers‬ today at ‪#Pirates‬ after brother committed suicide. Can't even imagine.

The Tigers had previously announced that he would spend some time away from the team due to "personal reasons." It's hard to imagine what Scherzer is going through right now -- things like this are never easy to handle -- but sometimes the best way through it is to try to get on with your life. That seems to be what Scherzer is doing.
