  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Out for rest of Fall Classic

    The Rangers removed Scherzer (back) from their World Series roster Tuesday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Scherzer had his Game 3 cut short after three innings due to back spasms, and he will now be forced to sit out the rest of the World Series. The 39-year-old was in line to start Game 7 if necessary, and it is unclear at the moment who will take his place in the rotation. Brock Burke will join the Rangers' roster in Scherzer's place to provide additional bullpen depth.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Battling back spasm

    Scherzer said after Monday's 3-1 victory over the Diamondbacks in the World Series that his start was cut short due to a back spasm, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Scherzer, who scattered two hits and two walks over three scoreless innings before exiting in the top of the fourth inning, noted that he's experienced the same issue in the past with varying outcomes. More specifically, Scherzer relayed that he's been able to overcome bouts with back spasms in 48-to-72 hours, and other instances where it's taken far longer to return to normal. The Rangers will keep a close eye on the veteran right-hander over the next few days to determine whether another appearance in the World Series is a possibility, though time is certainly not on Scherzer's side.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Exits early with trainer

    Scherzer was removed from Game 3 of the World Series against the Diamondbacks on Monday due to back tightness, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

    Scherzer beckoned to the team trainer shortly after he went out to warm up for the bottom of the fourth inning, and he exited the contest immediately after. Considering he only threw 36 pitches over three innings, it's possible the veteran right-hander could pitch again in a few days. However, Scherzer's availability for the rest of the series will depend on how he feels in the days to come.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Officially tapped for Game 3

    Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said Scherzer will start Wednesday in Arlington for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series matchup with the Astros, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Bochy had left open the possibility that Scherzer could pitch in relief in Game 1, but after Scherzer wasn't needed out of the bullpen in Sunday's 2-0 win, he's officially on tap for Game 3. Scherzer will have gone about five weeks in between starts, as he had to be lifted from his final regular-season outing Sept. 12 with a teres major muscle strain in his right shoulder. It's not clear what kind of workload is planned for Scherzer, but he'll surely be limited to some degree following a 60-pitch simulated game last week.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: On roster for ALCS

    Scherzer (shoulder) is included on the Rangers' roster for the American League Championship Series against the Astros, which begins Sunday in Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Scherzer has been sidelined for the past month by a strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder, but he's made a quick recovery after initially being given an 8-to-12-week return timeline. The 39-year-old tossed a 60-pitch simulated game Wednesday and could have some workload limitations when he takes the mound. According to Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic, manager Bruce Bochy said there's a "good chance" Scherzer starts Game 3 on Wednesday, but the right-hander could also be used Sunday if the right situation presents itself.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Takes fielding practice

    Scherzer (shoulder) went through pitchers' fielding practice at Globe Life Field on Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The veteran right-hander completed a 60-pitch simulated game Wednesday, and this is a good sign he's feeling OK afterward. The Rangers have not yet announced their ALCS roster, but it would be a surprise at this point if Scherzer isn't on it. He last pitched Sept. 12 due to a strain of the teres major muscle in his right shoulder and was initially given an 8-12 week timeline to return, so if he does indeed make it back for the ALCS it would be a rapid recovery.

  • Rangers' Max Scherzer: Encouraged after sim game

    Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said he was "real encouraged" by Scherzer's (shoulder) simulated game Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Scherzer nearly made the roster for the ALDS and appears on track to return to the Rangers' starting rotation for their upcoming ALCS matchup against the Astros, which begins Sunday in Houston. He's been sidelined since Sept. 12 because of a teres major muscle injury, but the veteran right-hander threw around 40 pitches to live hitters last Friday and extended himself to about 60 pitches during Wednesday's workout at Globe Life Field. Jon Gray (forearm) could also be activated for the American League Championship Series.
