MLB News: Max Scherzer Out 2 Months With Another Injury

The Mets were the big spenders across MLB during free agency. They went out and landed Max Scherzer on a massive deal worth $130 million to become one of their two aces. When Jacob deGrom went down with an injury, that honor fell to Scherzer alone. 

But the Mets just took another HUGE blow to their starting staff. In the middle of an outing, Scherzer signaled to the dugout that he was done. The Mets training staff came out and removed him from the game. The report directly from the team is that he has a moderate to severe oblique strain, and it will cause him to miss a big chunk of the MLB season. 

Scherzer is expected to be out for 6-8 weeks. That means the Mets will be without him and deGrom into Summer, a really difficult thing to overcome. But injuries are not a new thing for the 37-year-old, who complained about a dead arm in his run with the Dodgers last year. 

“Just felt a zing on my left side and just knew I was done. When I felt it, I just knew there’s no way you can throw another pitch, so just get out of there.”

The Dodgers were one of the many MLB teams looking to have Scherzer pitch for them in 2022. But the Mets came in with a deal that no team in baseball was willing to match, and he jumped at it. Now, they’re paying the price. 

So sometimes, it’s not always the worst thing in the world to miss out on a big name. Things happen in this league, and there are no guarantees with big contracts. Best of luck to Max, and hoping for a speedy recovery.
