New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer will make a minor league rehab start on Tuesday for Double-A Binghamton.
The ace faced hitters last Thursday in a three-inning simulated game, and now he’ll make a minor league rehab start this week as he works his way back from a left oblique strain.
Scherzer last pitched on May 18, where he picked up a win against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The 37-year-old can hopefully return to the Mets starting rotation in late June or early July, but we’ll see how he progresses in his rehab.
Scherzer’s carrying a 5-1 record to begin the 2022 season with a 2.54 ERA, 59 strikeouts, and 0.95 WHIP.
