MLB: How much are they missing? deGrom and Scherzer rejoin Mets in New York as rehab progresses

Now that the right-handed starters veterans Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer are back in Queens, it shouldn’t be long before the lost aces of the New York Mets return to the mound. Scherzer, who is rehabbing an injured left oblique muscle, is scheduled to throw a simulated game in the next few days at Citi Field in the Big Apple.

That should be his final test before beginning what he hopes will be one rehab start in the minor leagues (but he could end up becoming two or three). If all goes well, Scherzer could return in late June, coming to the end of his initial six-to-eight-week schedule:

Meanwhile, deGrom completed his fourth bullpen session Tuesday with a view to throwing an “up and down” bullpen on Friday, which is designed to simulate the breaks between inputs. From there, deGrom will advance to live batting practice and eventually a minor league rehab assignment of his own.

DeGrom’s minor league season should last longer than Scherzer’s, as he recovers from a stress reaction in his right scapula, but remains on track to return in early to mid-July.

That way, it’s conceivable that the Mets could have their two best pitchers back by the All-Star break, powering a rotation that ranks 24th in the majors with a 5.26 ERA since Scherzer joined deGrom in the disabled list in mid-May.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
