The New York Mets rotation took another big blow on Thursday.
The team announced that veteran right-hander Max Scherzer will miss 6-to-8 weeks with a “moderate to high-grade” oblique strain.
Scherzer underwent an MRI on Thursday morning after exiting his start against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.
This is a starting rotation that was already operating without Jacob deGrom and Tylor Megill. New York’s pitching depth will certainly be tested over the next several weeks.
