  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Sharp again in win

    Scherzer (5-2) earned the win Thursday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk over seven innings against Philadelphia. He struck out nine.

    Scherzer has now won three of his last four starts, allowing just three earned runs over 25 innings in that span while logging 28 strikeouts. The 38-year-old ace has returned to form after a shaky start to the season. Scherzer's ERA is down to 3.21 with a 1.09 WHIP and 48:14 K:BB through nine starts (47.2 innings) this season. He's tentatively lined up to face Atlanta on the road in his next outing.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Delivers vintage performance in win

    Scherzer (4-2) earned the win Friday, allowing one run on six hits over seven innings against Colorado. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.

    Scherzer has been dealing ever since struggling against the Tigers on May 3, when he coughed up six runs in 3.1 innings. The future Hall of Famer has allowed just two runs combined across his three starts since then, and he appears to be finally settled in after dealing with a 10-day suspension and neck spasms earlier in the year. The right-hander is tentatively slated to face the Phillies at home in his next start.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fires six shutout frames

    Scherzer didn't factor in the decision in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against Cleveland after he allowed three hits and one walk across six scoreless innings. He struck out five.

    The 37-year-old was on track for his fourth win of the season with the Mets leading 3-0 after seven innings, but Adam Ottavino and David Robertson surrendered four runs during the eighth. Scherzer missed out on the win but still delivered his best start of the season, with Sunday's outing being the first time in six starts since Opening Day he's completed six frames. According to Tim Healey of Newsday, Scherzer pitched with some raw skin on his thumb due to a split callus, though the fact he effectively pitched through the issue indicates it shouldn't be a problem moving forward.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Saturday's start rained out

    Scherzer won't start Saturday against the Guardians as scheduled, as the game has been postponed due to rain.

    The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday. Scherzer will take the hill for the afternoon game, per Tim Healey of Newsday.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Back on track

    Scherzer (3-2) gave up one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out six in five innings en route to the win Sunday in the Mets' 8-2 victory over Washington in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

    Scherzer was making his first start since giving up six earned runs in 3.1 innings May 3 in Detroit, so it's a positive to see him back on track, especially since a week ago he has been pitching through shoulder discomfort in addition to his recent neck spasms. For his next outing, Scherzer lines up to pitch at home this upcoming weekend against Cleveland.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Starting second game Sunday

    Scherzer (neck) will start the second game of a doubleheader against the Nationals on Sunday, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Mets manager Buck Showalter has not decided who will be the starter for the first game as of yet. The team will be able to call up a 27th player for the twin billing after Saturday's game was postponed due to rain, and it's possible New York could call on one of their arms from Triple-A Syracuse to start the game. Scherzer will be pitching for just the second time since April 10 because of a 10-game suspension and a bout with spasms in his neck.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Good to go for Sunday

    Scherzer (neck) said Friday that he's been cleared to start Sunday's game against the Nationals, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

    Scherzer completed a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday without any apparent issues, clearing the way for his return to the Mets rotation. He will be pitching on 10 days' rest and for just the second time since April 10 due to a suspension and then a bout with neck spasms.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Throws bullpen session

    Scherzer (neck) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    It was Scherzer's first time on the mound since he got scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Reds due to neck spasms. Those spasms lingered for a couple of days, but Healey notes that the veteran right-hander finished with a fist pump after Friday's workout, so Scherzer seemed pretty pleased with the session. He will likely get the call for the Mets on Sunday against his former club, the Nationals.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Neck still spasming

    Scherzer attempted to play catch Wednesday but cut it short because his neck was still spasming, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Scherzer noted that while the spasm "hasn't fully let go yet," he feels better than he did Tuesday and is still planning to make a start the weekend series against the Nationals, which runs through Monday. The three-time Cy Young winner has also been battling through nagging discomfort below his right scapula.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Uncertain for Tuesday's start

    Scherzer (shoulder) is uncertain for his scheduled start Tuesday against the Reds, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    David Peterson has joined the Mets in Cincinnati in the event that Scherzer is unable to pitch. The veteran ace acknowledged recently that he is still dealing with discomfort below his right scapula, an issue that first popped up in mid-April. He told Dan Martin and Mike Puma of the New York Post on Monday that he is "trying like hell not to join the IL."

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Aims for weekend return

    Scherzer (neck) said he hopes to slot back into the Mets' rotation during their upcoming four-game series against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    That four-game set at Nationals Park runs from Friday to next Monday. Scherzer was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Reds due to a bout of neck spasms which first set in Sunday and got worse Monday. The good news is he fully expects to avoid the injured list. David Peterson has been called up to take the mound in his place Tuesday night at Cincinnati.
