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.
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).
