Top Max Scherzer News

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Throws off mound

    Scherzer (shoulder) threw a light bullpen session Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Wednesday's bullpen session comes just two weeks after Scherzer was diagnosed with a low-grade strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder -- an injury that was expected to take 8-to-12 weeks to recover from. Multiple additional mound sessions will be required before Scherzer is able to progress to facing hitters, but the 39-year-old seems determined to make it back to the Rangers' rotation for the postseason.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Ramping up throwing program

    Scherzer (shoulder) upped the intensity of his flat-ground throwing Monday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    We're only two weeks into the projected 8-to-12 week timetable Scherzer was given after being diagnosed with a low-grade strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder. Clearly, Scherzer is doing his best to beat that timeline, perhaps by a significant margin. "It's another step forward," Scherzer said. "I'm continuing to strengthen my arm. [Throwing off] the mound is close." Scherzer still has multiple hurdles to clear, but he's giving himself a shot to make it back for a potential Rangers postseason run.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Likely done for 2023

    Scherzer was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday after being diagnosed with a low-grade strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder, and he will miss the rest of the regular season and likely the playoffs as well, Jeff Wilson of reports.

    The veteran right-hander exited Tuesday's start versus the Blue Jays after 73 pitches due to the injury, and it appears that will be his final appearance of 2023. Scherzer won't require surgery and will begin a rest and rehab program, with a re-evaluation scheduled in two weeks. He finishes the campaign with a 3.77 ERA across 152.2 innings between the Rangers and Mets, and he remains under contract with Texas for 2024 since he exercised his $43.33 million player option after being acquired by the organization at the trade deadline.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: MRI coming Wednesday

    Scherzer (triceps) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Julia Kreuz of reports.

    Scherzer was forced to leave Tuesday's game after 73 pitches due to the sensation he felt in his right shoulder and upper arm. The triceps issue is different from the right forearm tightness Scherzer experienced recently, but the right-hander postulated there could be a connection. More will be learned following Wednesday's MRI.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Battling triceps spasms

    Scherzer was pulled from his start Tuesday against Toronto due to right triceps spasms, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    After wincing upon throwing a pitch in the sixth inning, Scherzer has now officially been diagnosed with spasms in his right arm. The Rangers didn't offer any information regarding the severity of Scherzer's injury, so his status for his next start -- tentatively scheduled for Monday -- remains up in the air. The 39-year-old exited Tuesday's start with a 3-0 lead after striking out two through 5.1 scoreless innings while scattering three hits and one walk prior to his departure.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Exits with trainer

    Scherzer was taken out of Tuesday's game against Toronto after suffering an apparent injury, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Scherzer was in a bit of pain after throwing a pitch to Bo Bichette in the sixth inning of Tuesday's contest, and he wasn't able to get comfortable throwing warm-up pitches when a trainer came to look at him. The Rangers should offer more details shortly, but fantasy managers should consider Scherzer day-to-day until then.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Lit up by Astros

    Scherzer (12-6) allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four over three innings to take the loss Wednesday versus the Astros.

    Scherzer had allowed just nine runs combined over his first six starts with the Rangers. He was tagged for three home runs in this outing, including a grand slam from Jose Abreu in the third inning. Scherzer is now at a 3.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 172:44 K:BB through 147.1 innings over 26 starts between the Mets and the Rangers this year. He'll look to shake off this bad outing next week in a projected start In Toronto.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Good to go Wednesday

    Scherzer (forearm) has been cleared to start for the Rangers on Wednesday against the Astros, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Scherzer was lifted a little early from his previous outing Friday against the Twins because of some tightness in his right forearm, but he completed his between-starts bullpen session with no issues and is ready to go for Wednesday's key divisional showdown. The veteran right-hander boasts a 2.21 ERA in six starts since joining the Rangers at the trade deadline.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Tosses side session

    Scherzer (forearm) completed a bullpen session Sunday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    The Rangers will likely check back in with Scherzer and see how he's feeling Monday, but if he came out of the side session no worse for the wear, he should be able to make his next turn through the rotation Wednesday versus Houston. Scherzer relayed that he felt tightness in his forearm during his last start Friday against the Twins, but it didn't prevent him from striking out seven over six scoreless frames before he exited the contest.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Team monitoring forearm

    Scherzer experienced forearm tightness during his start Friday in the Twins' loss to the Rangers, Shawn McFarland of The Dallas Morning News reports. He was removed after six innings and 88 pitches, the fewest he's thrown since May 21.

    While the phrase "forearm tightness" is an ominous one for pitchers, Scherzer said he wasn't injured and feels the issue isn't serious enough to prevent him from making his next turn through the rotation. The right-hander emphasized that he was feeling fine during his six innings but didn't want to extend the outing due to the forearm issue. Manager Bruce Bochy also downplayed any concern about Scherzer's health, telling that "it's more of a fatigue thing." The team will monitor Scherzer for the next few days and see how he feels coming out of his between-starts bullpen session Sunday.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Dominant in quality start

    Scherzer did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing one hit and two walks over six shutout frames in the Rangers' loss to the Twins. He struck out seven.

    Scherzer was in line for his 13th win of the year before his bullpen coughed up the lead. He's been terrific since joining Texas, registering a 2.21 ERA and a 47:12 K:BB through six starts. For the season, his ERA is down to 3.55 across 144.1 frames. Scherzer is currently lined up to face Houston at home next week.
