New York Mets manager Buck Showalter said that Max Scherzer will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday.
Scherzer has been dealing with hamstring soreness, but it shouldn’t keep the ace sidelined for extended amount of time.
According to Showalter, the bullpen session goes on Tuesday could determine when Scherzer will be available to pitch.
The 37-year-old made his debut with the Mets on March 21 in Spring Training, and he looked like his normal self on the mound throwing for five strikeouts in five innings pitched.
Scherzer signed a massive three-year, $130 million contract with the Mets in November of last year, and he’ll earn an annual average salary of $43,333,333 until 2025.
