Max Scherzer injury update: Nationals pitcher won’t pitch against Braves

first_img MLB wrap: Ailing Max Scherzer pitching like he doesn’t want to be traded Related News “This is not something to be overly concerned about,” Scherzer said last week, per The Washington Post. “I know the feeling of what it’s going to take to get back on the mound and get completely through the ball. Like I said, we’re only a matter of days. This isn’t a long-term injury.”Scherzer, 34, is 9-5 with a 2.30 ERA. He leads the National League in innings pitched (129.1) and strikeouts (181). MLB trade rumors: Yankees’ Brian Cashman would do ‘whatever it takes’ to land Max Scherzer The same back tightness that kept Nationals ace Max Scherzer from pitching in the All-Star Game will force him to miss his second start out of the break he told reporters Friday.Scherzer was penciled in to pitch Sunday, but he will not be on the mound as he tries to clear up inflammation in a bursa sac in his lower back, which has been strained. Nationals not thinking about trading Max Scherzer ‘right now,’ general manager says Scherzer had an MRI on his back last week and it was negative.Scherzer reported discomfort in his back after his last two starts, wins June 30 vs. the Tigers and last Saturday vs. the Royals. In the Kansas City game, Scherzer pitched eight scoreless innings, striking out 14. The victory was his seventh in a row, a dominant stretch during which he allowed five runs and struck out 79.No starter has been named yet to replace him Sunday.last_img read more
