Max Scherzer's Dog Bit His 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 the New York Post today indicates 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 — Max Scherzer has a new injury to mend,

but likely not one that will cost him additional time on the injured list.

At his home in Florida, the Mets right-hander was bitten by one of his dogs in recent days.

according to one 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.

Talk about disaster narrowly avoided. It would've been standard Mets luck for Scherzer to hurt something important while he's at home rehabbing,
