NEW YORK (BVM) — Injuries happen all the time, especially in baseball. On Wednesday, one of the New York Mets’ aces, Max Scherzer, appeared to suffer an injury, sending shockwaves throughout the baseball world.
In what appeared to be another strong outing, Scherzer, on the way back to the mound motioned back to the New York dugout, “I’m done.”

It is unclear what the injury is, but this doesn’t appear to be good for the Mets. Scherzer worked 5.2 innings, allowed one earned run, and totaled four strikeouts before exiting.
The Mets are still dealing with an injury to Jacob deGrom. He suffered a stress reaction on his right scapula before the season and has yet to throw a pitch in the 2022 season.
Still, the Mets have shown baseball fans that they are one of the best teams in baseball with a 25-14 record, the best record in the NL East. To contend for a World Series title, they’ll need both aces. But it appears that both of them may not be back on the bump for a while.
