Yahoo!: Tigers’ Scherzer pulled with shoulder fatigue

The Tigers’ offense made sure he wasn’t missed tonight, however.

Max Scherzer left his start Tuesday night after only two innings because of a fatigued right shoulder, a potentially damaging blow to the Detroit Tigers as they try to catch the Chicago White Sox for the AL Central title.
...
Scherzer was scheduled to have an MRI after allowing a run and two hits Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics. He struck out four and threw only 44 pitches before left-hander Darin Downs came on from the bullpen to start the third inning.

Thats too bad. Was having such a good season. Keith Law is finally right about Max. But not until 4 straight seasons of 30 starts.

Bad news for Max, bad news for Tigers, bad news for my fantasy team. Scherzer's one of my favorite players in baseball. This is tough news. I hope it's minor.

This is very bad news. He's had a very difficult year to begin with.

Reports of the MRI suggest nothing more than muscle inflammation. He may make his next scheduled start.

it's funny--if you read the headline, it looks like someone is very happy about this news

Heh. The people who should be happy are the management of the Nationals. Suddenly, they don't look nearly so stupid for putting Strasburg on a hard inning limit and shutting him down while still in contention. They've got a good lead, they only need to make the second wild card, and Strasburg is their future. They are very unlikely to need him before the postseason, and if they do, he's there for a real emergency. And Scherzer (whom like if for no other reason than that he went to Mizzou) gives them a ready-made way to say "See, THAT's what we don't want to happen to Stephen." - Brock Hanke

I predicted this would happen to Max 4 years ago.

And three years ago.

And two years ago.

And last year.

This year? I thought he'd be fine. Who do you think I am, Nostradamus?

I forget who put this on his tombstone:

"I knew if I hung around long enough, something like this would happen".
