Maxwell M. Scherzer (born July 27, 1984 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Detroit Tigers. He currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.

After playing for Parkway Central High School, Scherzer was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 43rd round (1,291st overall) in the 2003 Major League Baseball draft but did not sign and instead attended the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. He was then drafted again in 2006 by the Arizona Diamondbacks, this time in the 1st round as the 11th overall pick.

He began playing in the Diamondbacks organization in 2007 with the Single-A Visalia Oaks. He was promoted to Double-A Mobile BayBears after three impressive starts for the Oaks. During the 2008 offseason, he was named the fourth-best prospect in the Diamondback's organization. After a good start to the 2008 season in Tucson he was called up to the Diamondbacks on April 27, 2008.
