Scherzer (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, and if all goes according to plan, he'll "hopefully" start Thursday's game against Colorado, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer has been on the shelf since July 13 due to an inflamed bursa sac in his shoulder, but he was able to toss a 15-pitch bullpen session Saturday without issue and will need to make it through one more side session to get the green light for Thursday's outing.
Scherzer (shoulder) felt great after a 15-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer hasn't pitched in two weeks due to an inflamed bursa sac in his shoulder. He'll throw a full bullpen session Monday and expects to be cleared to start soon after that.
Scherzer (shoulder) won't start Sunday as previously reported while he recovers from a cortisone injection he received earlier this week, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer originally believed he was dealing with a mid-back strain, but he was diagnosed with an inflamed bursa sac in his shoulder Tuesday and subsequently received the injection. The veteran right-hander threw on flat ground Friday and hopes to advance to a bullpen session within the next few days, which could allow him to come off the injured list sometime next week.
Manager Dave Martinez said Scherzer's (back) status for Sunday's start against the Braves is still undetermined, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Scherzer threw from 90 feet again Thursday, though he didn't get off a mound as was hoped. Martinez noted afterwards that the right-hander is still at about 90 percent, and the Nationals won't give him the ball until he's 100 percent healthy. If Scherzer is unable to start Sunday, look for Austin Voth to get the ball in his place.
Scherzer (back) played catch from 90 feet Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer apparently felt better during Wednesday's session, which marked his second throwing session in as many days. The right-hander is tentatively scheduled to throw a light bullpen Thursday, after which the Nationals will determine whether he's ready to rejoin the starting rotation Sunday against the Braves.
Scherzer (back) remains on target to start this weekend in Atlanta, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer has been sidelined with a mid-back strain, but he played catch Tuesday and doesn't appear set to miss too much time. He's eligible to return as soon as Saturday.
Scherzer (back) played catch Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Scherzer is on the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain, but the issue doesn't appear to be particularly severe. He'll be eligible to return as soon as Saturday, but the Nationals have yet to announce when he's expected back.
Scherzer was placed on the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Reports from earlier in the day suggested that the Nationals were fairly confident that Scherzer would start Tuesday against the Orioles, but there's evidently been a change of plans. The move was made retroactive to Wednesday, so Scherzer could return as soon as next Saturday in Atlanta, though it's not yet clear how long the Nationals expect him to be out. Spencer Kieboom was recalled in a corresponding move.
Scherzer (back) is expected to start Tuesday against the Orioles, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer was scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Phillies but was pushed back a few days due to back tightness, an issue he'd been dealing with over the last week of the first half. Normally, one might expect a minor injury to show up in a pitcher's numbers, but someone forgot to tell Scherzer that, as he allowed just a single run in 15 innings while posting a 25:1 K:BB over his last two starts before the break.
Scherzer's next start will be pushed back a few days due to back tightness, Carol Maloney of MASN reports.
Scherzer's back issues popped up just before the break and prevented him from pitching in the All-Star Game, but the original plan was for him to start Sunday's game against the Phillies. It doesn't sound as though the Nationals intend to skip his start entirely, and with an off day Monday, he'll get a few extra days to rest and could pitch Tuesday or Wednesday in Baltimore.
Scherzer won't be pitching in the All-Star Game on Tuesday due to back stiffness, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
True to form, Scherzer fanned 11 over seven scoreless innings despite nursing the back issue Saturday, as he's been dealing with the injury since last weekend. The 34-year-old will take the All-Star break to rest up and expects to return to the mound next Sunday at Philadelphia.
Scherzer struck out 11 over seven scoreless frames while allowing four hits and one walk to earn a victory over the Royals on Saturday.
After a bit of a slow start, Scherzer has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the game once again over the last six weeks. He's won seven straight starts and has posted a 0.87 ERA with 79 strikeouts in 52 innings during that stretch. That's made his season numbers much more Scherzer-like. He is 9-5 with a 2.30 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 181 strikeouts in 129.1 innings this season.
Scherzer was activated off the paternity list ahead of his scheduled start against the Royals on Saturday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Scherzer was able to spend three days with his wife and newborn daughter without delaying his start. Austin Voth was sent down to Double-A Harrisburg in a corresponding move.
Scherzer was placed on the paternity list Wednesday but is not expected to miss his next start Saturday against the Royals, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer can spend the full three days on the paternity list without putting his start at risk. Adrian Sanchez was called up to take his place on the roster.
Scherzer (8-5) allowed one run on four hits over eight innings Sunday, fanning 14 batters and earning the win over Detroit.
Scherzer was flat-out filthy in Sunday's outing, posting double-digit strikeouts for the fourth straight start and fifth time in his last six. June was an insane month for the Nationals' ace; he won all six of his starts while recording a 68:5 K:BB and 1.00 ERA. Scherzer will look to kick off July in similar fashion as he takes on the Royals at home Saturday.
Scherzer (7-5) picked up the win in Tuesday's 6-1 victory over the Marlins, giving up one run on five hits over eight innings while striking out 10.
The Nats' ace just keeps on rolling. Scherzer has won five straight starts, recording double-digit strikeouts in four of them, and he's delivered a quality start in 12 straight trips to the mound. He'll carry a 2.52 ERA and phenomenal 156:22 K:BB through 114.1 innings into his next outing Sunday in Detroit.
Scherzer is scheduled to start Tuesday at Miami, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Scherzer pitched the nightcap of Wednesday's doubleheader and will now slide ahead of Patrick Corbin in the starting rotation. Assuming the Nationals keep Scherzer on regular rest, he'll complete his two-start week Sunday at Detroit.
Scherzer (6-5) picked up the win in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, allowing four hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out 10 in a 2-0 victory over the Phillies.
Heading to the mound with a prominent black eye after breaking his nose during a bunting drill Tuesday, Scherzer was just that much more intimidating, and he struck out the side in his final frame to hit double-digit K's for the sixth time this season. He'll carry a 2.62 ERA and 146:22 K:BB through 106.1 innings into his next outing, likely set for next Wednesday in Miami.
Manager Dave Martinez said Scherzer (nose) will start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
Scherzer suffered a broken nose during a bunting drill Tuesday, but it won't keep the right-hander from making his scheduled start Wednesday. The veteran has been stellar in three starts this month, compiling a 1.23 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 34:3 K:BB in 22 innings.
Manager Dave Martinez said 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 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.
