Nationals P Max Scherzer pitches well in loss
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

For the first month of the season, run support has been hard to come by for Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer

On Friday, that rang true again. Scherzer had yet another exceptional night in a 4-0 loss to the Mets. Scherzer only gave up one earned run in the fourth inning on four hits. He threw 96 pitches and struck out 10 batters. He walked only one hitter. 

However, this is the third time the Nationals have scored one run or fewer when Scherzer's started. Scherzer is now 1-3 this season. 

Scherzer's next start is projected for May 6 against the Marlins.

Nationals SP Max Scherzer (thumb) penciled in to start Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer will rejoin the rotation Friday at N.Y. Mets, manager Matt Williams announced Wednesday.

The Nationals chose to skip Scherzer in the rotation Tuesday against the Braves after he jammed his thumb in his previous start last week. 

Scherzer has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his four starts this season, including Opening Day against the Mets, when he was charged with three unearned runs in 7 2/3 innings.

Nationals' Max Scherzer throws off mound, 'good to go'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer was able to throw off a mound on Tuesday, MASN Sports reported. 

Scherzer jammed his thumb in his last start and won't start on Tuesday night against Atlanta. 

He said he feels 100 percent and is "good to go", however. He doesn't believe he'll skip this turn in the rotation, just start a day late. Scherzer and the team still need to see how he feels on Wednesday morning before deciding on his availability.

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer not anticipated to make start Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals manager Matt Williams is not anticipating having pitcher Max Scherzer for his scheduled start Tuesday against the Braves, Williams said per the team.

"I would think that before another five days he'd be back," Williams said, per MLB.com. "But there's a progression there, too."

Scherzer, who is dealing with a thumb injury, is expected to sit out until his thumb is back to 100 percent, according to the team. Scherzer jammed his thumb in his last start Thursday and currently has a 1.26 ERA with 29 strikeouts and four walks in 28 2/3 innings. It is unknown who would fill in for Scherzer Tuesday.

Report: Nationals' Max Scherzer (thumb) seeing specialist
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Nationals starter Max Scherzer, who sprained his right thumb while hitting last Thursday, is reportedly seeing a specialist to gather more information about the injury, per Fox Sports' Jon Morosi. 

The Nationals are optimstic that their $200 million ace will miss no more than one start -- the one he was scheduled to make Tuesday against the Braves. Scherzer threw in the outfield on Sunday, but the thumb remained swollen. 

Scherzer is 1-2 over his first four starts with the Nationals but owns a 1.26 ERA and 29:4 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.
