Max Scherzer tosses ball cropped 3/21/22

Mets RHP Max Scherzer did not pitch as scheduled for Saturday’s 10:30 a.m. intrasquad game at Clover Park in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

When the action got underway, RHP Miguel Castro took the mound instead, with RHP Adam Ottavino warming up as the next pitcher in.

Team PR subsequently confirmed that Scherzer was no longer pitching and would provide an update on the situation later.

SNY’s Andy Martino reported Friday, after a Carton & Roberts report earlier in the afternoon of Scherzer’s hamstring issue, that the Mets believe the 37-year-old will be fine to replace injured RHP Jacob deGrom (shoulder) as the starter for Thursday’s regular-season opener at the Washington Nationals.

“What I’m told from the team is that they do think, right now, that Scherzer’s going to be OK for Opening Day,” Martino said on Baseball Night in NY.

Scherzer has made two spring training appearances in his short time with the Mets, including a 90-pitch outing this past Sunday, striking out 12 batters while walking one and hitting another. Over 11 innings pitched, he has allowed three runs on six hits (one home run).
