What happened to Max Scherzer?
Scherzer will be out “up to two months,” reports the New York Post.
The temporary break is the result of “moderate to high internal oblique loading”.
His injury was discovered via an MRI, the outlet reports.
Scherzer’s misalignment happened on May 18, 2022 at the game against the Cardinals.
He then signaled to the dugout with two outs in the sixth inning that he was out of the game.
The pitcher is also dealing with multiple blisters on his pitching hand, Mets manager Buck Showalter told the outlet.
“They took the pictures (Thursday) and waited for the doctors to take a picture, read them,” Showalter said ahead of Thursday’s game.
“Hopefully, I think [GM] billy [Eppler] or someone can address it later. I’m not sure if it will be after the game or (Thursday) once we have gathered all the information from the pundits,” Showalter said.
After the game, he also said that he “just felt a hiss on my left side and just knew I was done”.
He added, “I don’t think it’s a huge burden,” Scherzer said.
“I was kind of tight and then suddenly it went. But I don’t feel like I really ripped it. It only got worse.
“Hopefully I got out of there fast enough to prevent a big, big injury here. I know obliques and intercostals, those things can be uncomfortable. Hopefully I avoided a serious injury.”
