Max Scherzer News
The Texas Rangers announced on Tuesday that they have removed right-hander Max Scherzer (back) from the World Series roster after he had his start cut short in Game 3 on Monday night due to a back spasm. He is being replaced on the roster by left-hander Brock Burke, who will give Texas more bullpen depth for the rest of the series. Scherzer tossed three shutout innings against Arizona on Tuesday before being removed before the start of the fourth inning. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer suffered a shoulder strain in mid-September, so he didn't make his first playoff start this year until the ALCS against the Houston Astros. In his three postseason starts this year for the Rangers, Scherzer allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits (three homers) while walking five and striking out 13 in 14 1/3 innings.
Texas Rangers right-hander Max Scherzer (back) said the injury that forced him to leave Game 3 of the World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night after three innings is not a strain but a spasm. He said it's happened to him before and he was clear in 48-72 hours, but other times it's been worse. We won't know how serious the injury is for another couple of days or whether Scherzer will be available for the rest of the best-of-seven series. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer threw three shutout innings before his premature exit. Tuesday's outing was a nice bounce-back performance from Scherzer, who allowed seven earned runs in 6 2/3 innings in his first two starts of the postseason against the Houston Astros in the ALCS.
Texas Rangers right-hander Max Scherzer (back) called the athletic trainer out to the mound as he was warming up for the fourth inning in Game 3 of the World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday and was eventually removed from the game. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer is dealing with back tightness. Before departing early, he was shutting down the Snakes with just two hits allowed, two walks and one strikeout in three scoreless innings. Scherzer was replaced by right-hander Jon Gray, who was scheduled to start Game 4 of the series on Tuesday. Scherzer was added to the roster for the ALCS after being out since mid-September with a right-shoulder injury. It remains to be seen if he'll be available again in the World Series.
New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer continues to provide elite production on the mound, showing no signs of slowing down. The 38-year-old was effective as ever last season for the National League East club, throwing 145.1 innings over the course of 23 starts and pitching to a 2.29 ERA, a 2.62 FIP, and 173 strikeouts. Not only did Scherzer once again provide strong strikeout numbers, but he also continued to limited walks. The veteran allowed just 24 walks. All told, his walk rate finished at 4.2% which ranked in the 96th percentile league-wide. The 2023 campaign was the seventh-straight full season in which Scherzer logged an ERA below the 3.00 mark. With the strikeout totals continuing to remain high paired with the veteran's ability to limit runs and base runners, Scherzer makes for an ideal option for fantasy managers who want to wait on starting pitching and select their first starter in the fourth or fifth round of drafts in 2023.
