  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Serves up four homers in Game 1

    Scherzer took the loss in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Padres on Friday, allowing seven runs on seven hits -- including four home runs -- over 4.2 innings. He struck out four and did not issue a walk. Afterward, the veteran right-hander explained that there was nothing physically wrong with him, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. Scherzer said he simply wasn't getting his usual ride on his fastball and he wasn't sure why. Jacob deGrom (blister) will try to keep the Mets' season alive in Game 2 of the best-of-three series.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Knocked around in loss

    Scherzer (11-5) took the loss to Atlanta on Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits while striking out four and walking none over 5.2 innings. Scherzer fell victim to the long ball, giving up three of his four earned runs on two homers. He tossed 71 of 101 pitches for strikes across 5.2 frames. The veteran did not seem to have it in Saturday's appearance, allowing nine hits and striking out four batters, both of which were the second worst single-game totals for him this season. Despite the lackluster performance, he finishes the regular season with a still-impressive 2.29 ERA along with a 0.91 WHIP.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Whiffs seven in win

    Scherzer (11-4) earned the win during Sunday's 13-4 victory over Oakland, allowing one run on four hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in six innings. New York jumped out to an early lead, and Scherzer was able to limit the damage against him in his second start back from an oblique injury to a Seth Brown solo home run in the fourth inning. The 38-year-old fired 62 of 91 pitches for strikes with 10 of the swinging variety and has now surrendered just one run across 12 innings with 16 strikeouts over his last two starts. Scherzer sports a 2.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 169 strikeouts in 139.2 innings across 22 starts on the season. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch again next Sunday in Atlanta on Sunday Night Baseball.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Six perfect innings in return

    Scherzer (10-4) threw six perfect innings to earn the win in Milwaukee on Monday. He struck out nine. Scherzer was at the top of his game, but manager Buck Showalter pulled the right-hander after 68 pitches in what was Scherzer's first start back from an oblique injury. While he didn't get a chance to continue his bid for a perfect game, Scherzer picked up his 200th career win and helped the Mets clinch a postseason berth. He should be able to up his pitch count in his subsequent starts as he prepares himself for more important games in the playoffs.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Returns from IL

    The Mets reinstated Scherzer (oblique) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Brewers, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Scherzer will be rejoining the Mets for the final two and a half weeks of the season after he was cleared to return from the IL following his rehab start at Triple-A Syracuse last Wednesday. He struck out seven over 3.2 innings in his outing with Syracuse, allowing one earned run on three hits and a walk. Scherzer tossed only 59 pitches in that outing, so he could face a light workload restriction in Monday's contest. The three-time Cy Young Award winner will line up for a two-start week, with his second turn set to come Sunday in Oakland.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Starting Monday

    Scherzer (oblique) will be reinstated from the 15-day injured list to start Monday's game against the Brewers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Scherzer made a rehab start at Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday and allowed a run on three hits and a walk while striking out seven in 3.2 innings. He apparently felt good afterward since manager Buck Showalter confirmed Saturday that Scherzer will return following a minimal stay on the 15-day IL.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Rehabbing at Triple-A

    Scherzer (oblique) is scheduled to make a rehab start Wednesday for Triple-A Syracuse, Nate Mink of The Syracuse Post-Standard reports. Assuming Scherzer comes out of the rehab start without any renewed discomfort in his left oblique, he'll likely be activated from the 15-day injured list next Monday and start in Milwaukee that day. The three-time Cy Young Award winner is on the shelf for the second time this season due to an oblique injury, with the previous one costing him nearly a month.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Targeting Sept. 19 return

    The Mets are hoping to activate Scherzer (side) from the injured list when first eligible Sept. 19, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Scherzer has not had any hiccups since landing on the injured list last week, and when asked if Scherzer would return the first chance he can, manager Buck Showalter responded, "That's the hope." The next step in Scherzer's recovery will be either a simulated game or a rehab start with Triple-A Syracuse -- either could take place Wednesday.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Bullpen session goes as planned

    Scherzer (oblique) threw a bullpen session Sunday without issue, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The bullpen session was the first Scherzer has thrown since landing on the injured list, and it went off without a hitch. Scherzer will be eligible to be activated Sept. 19, and as things stand there is reason to believe he will return to action that day.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Going on IL

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Scherzer has been placed on the 15-day injured list with left oblique irritation, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. In his most recent start Saturday against the Nationals, Scherzer experienced what Showalter termed as "fatigue" in his left side. The Mets had been hopeful that the injury would be resolved after a few days of rest, but with Scherzer still not feeling up to par physically four days later, the team opted to move him to the IL. David Peterson will presumably step back into the rotation Friday in Miami to replace Scherzer, who won't be eligible to come off the IL until Sept. 19. According to Tim Healey of Newsday, the Mets are expecting Scherzer to be ready to go when first eligible, though his availability will likely hinge on how his injured oblique responds to throwing off a mound and facing hitters.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Uncertain for next start

    The Mets will likely decide Wednesday whether or not Scherzer (side) will make his next scheduled start, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Scherzer left his last outing with side soreness, and while manager Buck Showalter said afterward he hoped Scherzer would not miss any more action, there is still a chance he could do so. If Scherzer does not take the ball Friday when his spot in the rotation comes up, the Mets could push him back a day or two or skip his turn altogether. Scherzer's status will be updated again when the Mets announce what they ultimately plan to do.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Manager downplays injury

    Manager Buck Showalter said after Saturday's game that the team is hopeful Scherzer (side) will make his next start as scheduled, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Scherzer was lifted after only 67 pitches Saturday with what was described as a "fatigued" feeling in his left side. However, the skipper said Scherzer "probably could have continued to pitch but just didn't feel it was a good idea," per Tim Britton of The Athletic. While it sounds like Scherzer could make his date with the Marlins next week, we may not know his status for certain until after his next bullpen session.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Leaves with left side fatigue

    Scherzer left Saturday's game against the Nationals "feeling fatigued on his left side," Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. Scherzer was chasing his 200th career win, but this issue forced him from the game after only 67 pitches. He should be considered day-to-day for now. If there are any concerns about Scherzer's oblique, the Mets may have to give the right-hander some down time.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Early exit Saturday

    Scherzer was removed from Saturday's game against the Nationals after five innings and 67 pitches, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. A reason for his exit was not immediately available, but something seems to be up with Scherzer given the circumstances. The game was tied 1-1, he was chasing his 200th career win and his pitch count was manageable. The Mets figure to provide an update later in the evening.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Tough loss Sunday

    Scherzer (9-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk over seven innings against the Rockies. He struck out 11. Scherzer was effective Sunday as he reached double-digit strikeouts for the sixth time this season. The only damage against him came in the seventh inning when the Rockies manufactured a run on a couple of infield hits and a sacrifice fly. Scherzer now owns a 2.27 ERA, which would be good for sixth in the league if he had enough innings to qualify. He will try to get back in the win column in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for next weekend against Washington.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Handed third loss

He yielded a solo home run to Aaron Judge in the third inning after not giving up a homer in any of his three previous starts. Scherzer's ERA is up to 2.33 alongside a 137:21 K:BB through 18 starts after punching out a season-low three batters. He's lined up to face the Rockies at home this weekend.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Allows four runs in win

    Scherzer (9-2) earned the win Wednesday, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks over 6.1 innings in the Mets' 9-7 victory over the Braves. He struck out eight. Max was not at his best Wednesday but still earned the win against a red-hot Atlanta team. One factor to blame may be that the game was interrupted for a 90-minute rain delay in the third inning. Scherzer may have worn down by the sixth inning when the Braves tagged him for three of the runs he allowed. However, the Mets held the lead and earned the future Hall of Famer his ninth win of the season. He will take a 2.15 ERA into his next start.
