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 that Scherzer was examined after leaving the mound during a start the previous day with biceps cramps.
According to the report, Scherzer was diagnosed with a right psoas major strain. 온라인바카라
The supraspinatus is a muscle that connects the shoulder blade to the upper arm bone. It’s a muscle that is often injured in pitchers because of the upward motion of the arm. In 2020, Corey Kluber of the Texas Rangers lost most of his season to this injury.
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, he has gone 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA. He struck out 53 batters while walking 15.
Scherzer made his big league debut in 2008 and has never been sidelined by an arm-related injury. He was limited to 23 games in 2022 due to a strained oblique muscle.
Scherzer was acquired to fill the void left by Jacob deGrom’s Tommy John surgery, but he too has been sidelined by 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.
