Mets push back Max Scherzer’s rehab start, raising questions about return

The New York Mets announced that they have delayed Max Scherzer’s rehab start by a day, calling into question his status for the upcoming series against the Atlanta Braves.

That New York Mets managed to have the best record in the National League even without two of their best starting pitchers, including Max Scherzer. He left a start in May after suffering an oblique injury but had recently made a rehab start and was closer to a return.

But on Tuesday, June 27, Mets manager Buck Showalter said the team postponed Scherzer’s second scheduled rehab start that night to Wednesday with Double-A Binghamton. Showalter said the decision was made to give Scherzer an extra day off.

Max Scherzer’s planned start of rehabilitation has been postponed

Mets fans will be keeping a close eye on how Scherzer fares and feels during his June 28 rehab start. Looking at their schedule, they have a crucial series from July 11-13 against the Atlanta Braves, who have churned up the NL East table and sit five games behind the Mets for Tuesday night’s first entry.

Before he tried his slash, Scherzer had a 2.54 ERA, a .946 WHIP, 59 strikeouts and 11 walks in eight starts (49.2 innings).

Scherzer’s return will obviously give the Mets pitching staff a huge boost when he returns. It will just be a matter of his return, which the fan base is hoping will be for or before the Braves series.
