Max Scherzer Newsbeat

Friday, March 10, 2017

Why Max Scherzer is a true rarity among baseball’s best pitchers | FOX Sports

Scherzer, early in his career, struggled to identify the proper off-season throwing program.

“I had problems up to 2012,” Scherzer said. “It all stemmed from one thing — taking time off.

“The baseball book says don’t throw a ball until Jan. 1. And that’s what I did. I never touched a ball in October, November, December. Then, when I would start my throwing, my shoulder would kill.”

So after ’12, Scherzer stopped shutting down his arm once the season ended, playing catch on occasion in November and December to make it easier for him to ramp up in January.
