The National League East-leading New York Mets might be closely looking toward the return of Max Scherzer and Jacob DeGrom, a three-time Cy Young Award winner and a two-time Cy Young Award winner respectively.
Scherzer, who wounded his left oblique while pitching against St. Louis on May 18, carried himself back to New York after rehabbing in Florida and threw in the outfield at Citi Field before Tuesday night’s series opener against Milwaukee Brewers.
Jacob DeGrom, who has not pitched in a game this season because of a stress reaction in his right scapula, threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday before the series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field.

The 37-year-old right-hander, Max Scherzer, is expected to throw a simulated game Thursday. Scherzer said he’s not considering putting a program on when he might return to the active roster.
“The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle’s getting back to 90% and then the second half of this battles from 90% to 100%,” Max Scherzer said. “With the trainers here, we’ve done a great job of getting back to 90%, but I’m still in a fight there to try to get to 100%. We’ve done good work to get to this point, but I’ve still got a lot in front of me.”
The 33-year-old pitcher, Jacob DeGrom, nicknamed “The deGrominator” DeGrom, missed the second half of last season because of a right elbow injury and hasn’t pitched this year. He threw 30 pitches Tuesday in his fourth bullpen session.
“So far everything has felt good,” DeGrom told reporters on Saturday, news upon his rehab, at Citi Field. “I feel completely normal.”
The ‘Brown Eye’ Max Scherzer has had a massive career record of 195-98 with an ERA of 3.15 meanwhile Jacob DeGrom has had a career record of 77-53 with an ERA of 2.50.
