News

Scherzer (finger) will throw another bullpen session Monday using a modified grip on his fastball, The Washington Post reports.

Impact

There's even talk of Scherzer pitching in a spring training game using the three-fingered grip, as he attempts to build up arm strength while waiting for the stress fracture in the knuckle of his ring finger to fully heal. With over a month to go until Opening Day, he still has plenty of time to get ready for the regular season, but if Scherzer is still experiencing soreness in the knuckle a couple of weeks from now, it's possible he could miss a turn or two through the rotation when the games begin to matter.
