On Wednesday, Max Scherzer left the game against the Atlanta Braves early after dealing with an issue with his hamstring. Fans were concerned and hoping that the Dodgers’ ace was not injured. Thankfully, there was no injury in the hamstring, instead, it just tightened up before the game and continued to get a little worse while he was pitching.
By the sixth inning, he was taken out.
Now he has been trying to get back to normal and seems to be feeling better. LA manager Dave Roberts spoke about Scherzer and gave an update on Friday, just before the Giants series starts.
The good news: Max Scherzer is feeling good an expected to be in there on Monday.
So sounds like that hamstring issue wasn't a big deal.

When asked if he expects Scherzer to start Monday, Roberts said:
We do, we do. He said it feels much better. We got ahead of it, being responsible. [He] went out there and played catch and he’ll throw his side [session] tomorrow.
Max Scherzer has been a huge addition to the LA rotation. After getting hit hard by the injury bug all season long, Max has proven to be exactly what the team needed. So far with the Dodgers, the right-hander has recorded 50 strikeouts in 6 starts, allowing only 5 earned runs over 34.2 innings pitched.
Max Scherzer is a major asset to the Dodgers and keeping him healthy is a must. No need to worry though, Dodgers fans, it looks like he is going to be just fine.
