JUPITER, FLORIDA - MARCH 21: Max Scherzer #21 of the New York Mets delivers a pitch in the fourth inning against the Miami Marlins in the Spring Training game at Roger Dean Stadium on March 21, 2022 in Jupiter, Florida. (

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets ace Max Scherzer is dealing with a hamstring issue and isn’t sure when he’ll pitch next.

It’s a second straight setback for the top of the team’s much-heralded rotation.

A day after the Mets said star Jacob deGrom will miss significant time with a shoulder injury, Scherzer was scratched from his outing Saturday morning in a simulated game.

Just five days away from opening day in Washington, Scherzer said he wasn’t sure about the immediate plans.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner added that he doesn’t expect the trouble with his right hamstring to be a long-term problem.

The Mets signed Scherzer as a free agent to a $130 million, three-year contract.

All-Star Chris Bassitt, Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker also are in the rotation.
