New York Mets Place Max Scherzer on the Injured List


The New York Mets have officially placed Max Scherzer on the injured list, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

This was a foregone conclusion after it was announced that Scherzer would miss the next 6-8 weeks due to an oblique strain. That likely means the earliest the Scherzer would return to the rotation for the Mets would be right around the All-Star break. Scherzer was off to his usual start to the season. He was 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA and 0.95 WHIP, along with 59 strikeouts in 49.2 innings pitched. Scherzer now joins Jacob deGrom and Tyler Megill as starting pitchers in the IL for the Mets.

The Mets did receive some good news Saturday when it was announced that outfielder Starling Marte would be activated from the bereavement list before the first game of the doubleheader versus the Rockies on Saturday.

The Rockies will start German Marquez in the first game of the DH, while the Mets will have Carlos Carrasco on the mound. The Rockies are -154 (+1.5) on the run line and +108 on the money line, with an over/under of 9.5, over (-110), and under (-110).
