      Nationals' Max Scherzer: Expects to pitch Wednesday

      Manager Dave Martinez said Max Scherzer (nose) intends to pitch Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. "He said last night, he's pitching," the skipper said. "He was very adamant about wanting to pitch [Wednesday]."Along with breaking his nose while taking part in a bunting drill Tuesday, Scherzer is dealing with a black eye on the right side of his face, though it doesn't sound like either issue will keep the right-hander from taking the mound for his scheduled start Wednesday. He's expected to speak with the team's athletic trainer early Wednesday, per Kolko, at which point the Washington Nationals will have a clearer idea regarding his status. If Scherzer is ultimately unable to pitch, Austin Voth or Erick Fedde would make a spot start in his place.

      Nationals' Max Scherzer: Still iffy for Wednesday

      General manager Mike Rizzo said that while Max Scherzer (nose) is "scheduled" to pitch the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, the right-hander's status for the contest remains undetermined, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. "I think we'll see what happens when he wakes up [Wednesday]," Rizzo said.Scherzer is still recovering from the broken nose he sustained while taking part in a bunting drill Tuesday, putting his availability entirely up in the air. Patrick Corbin is slated to start the first game of the twin bill for the Washington Nationals, and the club also recalled Triple-A Fresno rotation member Austin Voth to serve as the 26th man for the day. If Scherzer's nose is presenting too much discomfort for him to pitch Wednesday, he'll likely be pushed back in the schedule, opening up a start for either Voth or Erick Fedde, according to Dan Kolko of MASN Sports.
