Nats' Max Scherzer's thumb swollen after getting jammed Thursday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that pitcher Max Scherzer's thumb is a bit swollen on Friday, according to the team's official website.

Scherzer jammed his thumb when he hit a grounder to the left side in the fifth inning of Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Cardinals. The right-hander was pulled for pinch-hitter Tyler Moore in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Nationals plan to have him thrown an bullpen session between starts, and if he is experiences any issues, they'll adjust their rotation plans.

At this point, Williams expects Scherzer to be ready for his next scheduled start on Tuesday against Atlanta, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.

Nationals SP Max Scherzer jammed his thumb in loss to Cardinals
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer said he jammed his thumb when he hit a grounder to the left side in the fifth inning of Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Cardinals.

The right-hander was pulled for pinch-hitter Tyler Moore in the bottom of the seventh inning. Scherzer allowed only two runs over seven innings, and said the injury shouldn't be considered "too serious" heading into his next scheduled start on Tuesday against Atlanta, per the Washington Post.

"He came in and said, 'Hey, I'm not where I want to be. I'm not controlling my pitches the way I want to control 'em,'" manager Matt Williams said. "So that being said, we decided to go with a hitter there anyway. As it ended up, it didn't matter but nonetheless he wasn't comfortable out there pitching. So if you're not comfortable out there pitching then there's no reason for him to hit there."

Nationals P Max Scherzer strikes out 9 in win over Phillies
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer pitched eight dominant innings in Friday night's 7-2 win over the Phillies. 

Scherzer gave up only one earned run, which came in the third inning. Scherzer was in command the entire game, dictating the tempo with each batter. He struck out nine hitters and walked zero. 

"I'm just glad he's on my team," right fielder Bryce Harper said, per MLB.com.  "He's one of the best in all of baseball. I've been saying that since Spring Training. Him going out there, being able to go seven or eight strong for us, it's very impressive. He's a bulldog out there, he's got that mentality that he wants to kick your teeth in and really go at it, and he's very, very good out there."

He only gave up four hits through the game. 

Scherzer's next projected start is on April 23 against the Cardinals.
