Early Friday evening, the Washington Nationals announced that Max Scherzer wouldn’t start against the San Diego Padres tonight due to tightness in his neck, the second such instance in four starts in which the injury sidelined Scherzer.

Later, the team announced that they had placed him on the 10-day DL with left neck inflammation.

Scherzer had a start cut off after just one inning in August with spasms in the right side of his neck. Friday night, the issue reappeared on the left side. The Nationals are the owners of a 14-game lead in the National League East, so they won't take any chances with their ace. Expect him to miss two starts, but unless the injury becomes aggravated, his stay on the disabled list should be a short one. He'll need the stretch run to get back into shape for the playoffs.

<![CDATA[Max Scherzer Placed on 10-Day DL with Neck Injury]]> Max Scherzer was scratched from Friday's start against the San Diego Padres because of a neck injury, according to MASN's Mark Zuckerman. 

Later in the evening, MASN's Dan Kolko reported Scherzer was placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to August 15 with left neck inflammation. 

Scherzer last landed on the injury report Aug. 1 when he was pulled from his start against the Miami Marlins with spasms on the other side of his neck.  

However, that proved to be more of a scare than anything else, and he returned to the mound Aug. 7.]]> 4989104 Fri, 18 Aug 2017 21:35:01 EDT Bleacher Report

The Nationals are hopeful that he's only going to miss just one additional start, but will obviously play things very cautiously with their star right-hander.

This is a reappearance of an injury that sidelined Scherzer earlier in August, although on the other side of his neck this time. Scherzer was forced to leave a start after just one inning last time, but did not miss any of his subsequent scheduled starts. As such, Scherzer may not need a disabled list trip, but we'll know more after team doctors are able to get a better look at his neck. Matt Grace will take the mound Friday in Scherzer's place.

<![CDATA[Scherzer strikes out 10 in no-decision]]> Max Scherzer got the no-decision on Sunday after giving up two runs on five hits (one home run) and one walk with 10 strikeouts in seven innings against San Francisco.

Spin: It was the 13th game with 10 or more strikeouts for Scherzer (12-5, 2.25 ERA) this season, who held a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning before yielding a solo homer to Pablo Sandoval. Scherzer has 19 strikeouts over his last two starts, his only outings after exiting his Aug. 1 start with neck spasms. That should be comforting for fantasy owners, as he hasn’t shown any ill effects from the injury. Scherzer will start next on Aug. 18 at San Diego.]]> 4985004 Sun, 13 Aug 2017 22:49:13 EDT

Max Scherzer’s last start against the Miami Marlins ended after just one inning of work on the mound when he experienced neck spasms after hitting his first career homer in Marlins Park. The problem had been an issue for a few days after Scherzer slept wrong, but he was confident that it wouldn’t be a lingering issue.
