Max Scherzer shares thoughts on injury that has sidelined him for past month

New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer doesn't want to put a timetable on when he might return from his injury but he is making a strong progress and nearing a return. Scherzer has been out for the past month as he injured his left oblique against the St.

Louis Cardinals on May 18. After rehabbing his injury in Florida, Scherzer returned to New York and he is definitely nearing toward a return. "The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle's getting back to 90% and then the second half of this battle's from 90% to 100%," Scherzer said.

"With the trainers here, we've done a great job of getting back to 90%, but I'm still in a fight there to try to get to 100%. We've done good work to get to this point, but I've still got a lot in front of me."

The Mets should soon get back Scherzer, Jacob deGrom

Scherzer and deGrom are nearing a return and the Mets will certainly be hoping to have their star pitching duo healthy for the second part of the season. DeGrom hasn't pitched in any games this season as he suffered a stress reaction in his right scapula just before the start of the season.

When Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor was asked about the Scherzer and deGrom returns, he said the Mets can't be looking at them as saviors. “No one on this team is the savior — no one,” Lindor said, 11-day trip.

“We all are a team, we all believe in each other, we all count on each other. We want [deGrom and Scherzer] to be back, they are a huge part of our team, but no one here is a savior. It would be unfair for them to come back and us to say, ‘You are the savior. Go and take us to the Promised Land.’"
