Scherzer struggled a bit through the first month of the season, but went on a patented run in May and June that made him look like the Scherzer of old. Unfortunately, a back injury largely derailed his second half, as he was limited to just over 20 innings over July and August. Scherzer is entering his age-36 season and is a max effort pitcher, so the fact that we finally saw a bit of a breakdown (Scherzer has reached at least 200 innings in his six previous seasons) is concerning. But his numbers are still elite and he should be taken as one of the first pitchers off the board despite the back scare.

Max Scherzer dealing with right side discomfort

Max Scherzer told reporters that he is dealing with some discomfort in his right side.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer added that this isn’t an injury but rather a result of him still building up endurance. The good news is, as of now, he is still expected to start on Sunday as scheduled. However, it’s yet another potential injury to a top-tier starting pitcher right in the middle of draft season. It’ll be important to track this moving forward.
