Three-time Cy Young Award Winner, he threw 50 pitches Thursday in Citi Field's simulated game as he recovered from a left oblique strain. The right-hander hopes to feel better and will make a minor league rehab debut next Tuesday. It's possible that he could then return to the Mets.

It's impossible to speculate because once you reach the next level, it might be too stressful. You shouldn't think any further than you can. Scherzer stated that this is a difficult injury.

“So, I would love to tell you that one rehab start is possible and that I will feel great. I plan to return. I'd love to be able to do that. Is it possible? Yes. However, the truth is that I could easily have a rehabilitation start and have it be difficult. I would want to do it again before I actually play in a major league game. I am very conscious of my injury and have been working hard to avoid any setbacks.

Scherzer doesn't mind getting fully stretched before starting a major-league game.

“I'm okay with being a little restricted. He stated, “If I can throw 70, 80 pitches again — let me have the ball.”

According to this, Scherzer would be ready to pitch in Miami on June 26th. That would be 5½ weeks after he was injured in a May 18 start against St. Louis.

The Mets revealed that Scherzer's injury was caused by an oblique strain after testing. This usually requires a six- to eight-week recovery.

Scherzer would be likely to return home on the weekend of July 3rd and 4th against Texas if he makes a second rehab start in minors. However, even this projection assumes no setbacks.

Showalter stated that Showalter was “into it, and you could see how much he loved being back on the mound here in Citi Field.”

Following signing a $130m, three-year free agent contract, Scherzer is currently 5-1 and has a 2.54 ERA over eight seasons with the Mets.

New York is also missing another ace Jacob deGromHe was sidelined for the season due to a stress reaction in his right shoulder. A stress reaction in his right scapula caused by a stress reaction, the Cy Young Award winner twice won didn't allow him to pitch after July 7.
