Battling back spasm Scherzer said after Monday's 3-1 victory over the Diamondbacks in the World Series that his start was cut short due to a back spasm, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Impact Scherzer, who scattered two hits and two walks over three scoreless innings before exiting in the top of the fourth inning, noted that he's experienced the same issue in the past with varying outcomes. More specifically, Scherzer relayed that he's been able to overcome bouts with back spasms in 48-to-72 hours, and other instances where it's taken far longer to return to normal. The Rangers will keep a close eye on the veteran right-hander over the next few days to determine whether another appearance in the World Series is a possibility, though time is certainly not on Scherzer's side.
