New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer made a rehab start with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the team’s Double-A affiliate, on Tuesday night at Mirabito Stadium.
The right-hander surrendered a pair of runs on three hits over 3 1/3 innings while walking one and striking out six. He threw a total of 65 pitches.

“I want to get back out there so bad,” Scherzer told reporters at Binghamton following his rehab start for the Rumble Ponies. “You put in all this work, you see the team playing great baseball, you want to be out there and competing and winning with them.
“I want to be in the big leagues, not be a Rumble Pony.”

If Scherzer wanted to remain on a five-day schedule, and the Mets gave him the go-ahead to do so, he would be lined up to start on Sunday.
