Pitchers being checked for banned substances is more and more common in Major League Baseball. Unfortunately for veteran starter Max Scherzer, he was reminded of this on Tuesday night.

In a meeting with the Philadelphia Phillies, Scherzer was indeed checked for sticky substances. He was furious about things, which you can see in the video below.

Goodness, the man could not be more annoyed. In that clip, Scherzer's reaction to things really said it all. He's one of the most respected starters in the game, so the fact that he's being checked for cheating doesn't sit well with him. This surely won't be the first time we saw a hurler furious about getting checked.
