Max Scherzer’s Dog Bit His Non-Throwing Hand,
Max Scherzer is currently on the disabled list rehabbing an oblique strain after a seething start to the year for the New York Mets. A report from today’s New York Post indicates that Scherzer’s rehab stint hasn’t exactly been a low-key affair, reporting that Scherzer’s dog bit his non-throwing hand. Per post:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Max Scherzer has a new injury to heal, but probably not one that will cost him more time on the disabled list.
At his home in Florida, the Mets right-hander was bitten by one of his dogs in recent days, according to a source. The bite was to Scherzer’s non-throwing (left) hand, lessening the team’s concern. Scherzer is on the disabled list with an oblique strain and is rehabbing for a possible return to the Mets in July.
He talks about a disaster narrowly averted. It would have been standard Mets luck for Scherzer to hurt something major while he’s home rehabbing, especially if his own dog bites him. That’s right up there with Francisco Lindor who wasted time after getting his finger stuck in a hotel door earlier this season.
The Mets comfortably lead the NL East despite Scherzer’s absence, but hopefully, Scherzer’s dog relaxes and New York doesn’t have to worry about a thing.
