Texas Rangers starting pitcher Max Scherzer’s season is over.
Rangers general manager Chris Young told the Dallas Morning News and other local media outlets on Thursday (July 14) that Scherzer, who left his start the previous day with biceps cramps, was examined.
According to the report, Scherzer was diagnosed with a right psoas major strain.
The supraspinatus is the muscle that connects the shoulder blade to the upper arm bone. It is a muscle that is often injured by pitchers who raise their arms upward. In 2020, Corey Kluber of the Texas Rangers missed most of the season with this injury.온라인카지노
While the injury doesn’t require surgery, the problem is that he doesn’t have much time left.
Young doesn’t expect Scherzer to pitch the rest of the regular season, let alone the postseason.
Scherzer came to Toronto from the New York Mets via trade in late July.
In eight games and 45 innings since his arrival, Scherzer is 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA. He struck out 53 batters while walking 15.
Scherzer, who made his big league debut in 2008, has never been sidelined by an arm-related injury. In 2022, he was limited to 23 games due to an oblique injury.
Scherzer was acquired to fill the void left by Jacob deGrom, who was lost to Tommy John surgery, but he too was lost to injury.
The Texans have John Gray, Jordan Montgomery, and Dane Dunning anchoring the starting rotation, as well as Nathan Ivoldi, who is building back from injury.
Someone has to take Scherzer’s spot. The Dallas Morning News named Andrew Heaney, Martin Perez, and others who have recently been relegated to the bullpen as possible replacements.
