As part of his recovery process, New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer (oblique) will require another rehab start on Tuesday, according to Tim Healey of Newsday. The team was hopeful that he could pitch in the majors on Sunday, but evidently he needs a little more time. (Tim Healey on Twitter)
Scherzer has been on the injured list since May 21 due to a left oblique strain. He threw 3 1/3 innings in Triple-A last week, allowing two runs, three hits, and one walk while striking out six batters. The prized 37-year-old went 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and .203 OBA in addition to 10.69 K/9 and 1.99 BB/9 through eight starts prior to his injury.
