  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Dominant versus Yankees

    Scherzer allowed five hits, two walks and a hit batsman in seven shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' win over the Yankees. He struck out six but did not factor into the decision.

    Scherzer pitched well enough to win, but David Peterson appeared out of the bullpen and allowed a game-tying two-run home run to Gleyber Torres in the eighth inning. This was Scherzer's third straight start without a win, his longest drought of the season. He now has a 2.09 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 104:15 K:BB in 82 innings across 13 turns, with all but three having been quality starts. The ace right-hander lines up for a favorable road start versus the Nationals next week.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Back on mound vs. Yankees

    Scherzer is scheduled to start Wednesday's series finale with the Yankees at Citi Field, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The Mets elected to adjust reorder their rotation following Monday's off day, so Scherzer will remain on four days' rest and take the hill Wednesday for what would have been David Peterson's day to pitch. Though Scherzer will miss out on a more favorable matchup this weekend in Miami, fantasy managers were already likely keeping the three-time Cy Young Award winner active regardless of his opponent. He enters Wednesday's contest with a 2.28 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 98:13 K:BB across 75 innings on the season.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Tough loss in quality start

    Scherzer (6-2) took the loss Friday, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings as the Mets fell 4-1 to the Padres. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander made only one real mistake in his pitchers' duel with Yu Darvish, but Eric Hosmer took it the other way for a two-run home run and the Mets' offense couldn't come up with a response. Scherzer has now reeled off four straight quality starts since coming off the IL at the beginning of the month, posting a 1.78 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and eye-popping 39:2 K:BB through 25.1 innings over that stretch.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fans 11 in nightcap

    Scherzer allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts in 6.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    This was Scherzer's worst of three starts since returning from an oblique strain. The eight hits were a little concerning, but he was able to mitigate the damage well. He's racked up 31 strikeouts in 19.1 innings since his return, and he's allowed two or fewer runs in eight of his 11 starts this year. The star right-hander closes the first half of the campaign with a 2.22 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 90:12 K:BB in 69 innings.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fans nine in Monday's win

    Scherzer (6-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing one run on three hits over seven innings in a 4-1 victory over Atlanta. He struck out nine without walking a batter.

    It was a vintage Scherzer performance, as the right-hander piled up 21 swinging strikes among his 93 pitches while taking a shutout into the seventh inning before Austin Riley broke it up with a solo shot. Scherzer has been on fire since coming off the injured list, posting a 20:0 K:BB over two starts, and on the season he boasts a 2.15 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 79:11 K:BB in 62.2 innings.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Dominant in return from IL

    Scherzer didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Reds, scattering two hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out 11 without walking a batter.

    Making his first start since May 18 due to an oblique strain, Scherzer took out his pent-up frustrations on Cincinnati hitters, setting a new season high in Ks while firing 57 of 79 pitches for strikes, including 15 swinging strikes. Unfortunately for the right-hander, the Mets' offense didn't show up to support him. His return comes just in time for a tattered New York rotation that's missing five other potential members at the moment, including Jacob deGrom (shoulder), Tylor Megill (shoulder) and Chris Bassitt (COVID-19), and Scherzer will take a 2.26 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 70:11 K:BB through 55.2 innings into his next outing.

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

    The Mets reinstated Scherzer (oblique) from the 15-day injured list in advance of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Reds, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Reliever Chasen Shreve was designated for assignment to clear space on the 26-man active roster for Scherzer, who was sidelined for just over six weeks with a strained left oblique muscle. The right-hander completed two minor-league rehab starts prior to being activated and is targeting around six innings or 90 pitches in his return to the big-league rotation Tuesday. If all goes well, Scherzer will line up to make his second start of the week against the Marlins on Sunday, when he shouldn't face any restrictions.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Set to be activated

    Scherzer (oblique) will be activated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday and start that night against the Reds, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Scherzer will return to the team after being away while nursing an oblique strain that he suffered May 18. He's hoping to toss about 90 pitches over six innings when he returns to the mound Tuesday. The 37-year-old surrendered four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out 14 over eight innings in two rehab starts with Double-A Binghamton. Prior to the injury, Scherzer had produced a 2.54 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with a 10.7 K/9 over 49.2 frames in eight starts.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Unlikely to return this weekend

    Scherzer (oblique) is now scheduled to make his next rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton rather than Tuesday as originally planned, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Provided the change in Scherzer's schedule wasn't the result of a physical setback, having his rehab outing pushed back a day won't have any major ramifications on his rest-of-season outlook. However, the adjustment will presumably take Scherzer out of the mix from returning from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's series finale versus the Rangers. As long as Scherzer pitches for Binghamton on Wednesday and checks out fine following the outing, he'll tentatively line up to come off the IL and make a start in Cincinnati on Independence Day.
