Dead arm

As 2021 becomes 2022, New York Mets’ newest pitcher Max Scherzer opened up about the dead arm issue that prevented him from pitching in game six of the NLCS. After the 2021 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Scherzer became a free agent signed with Steve Cohen’s Mets. He received an exploitably large contract worth over $43 million annually over a three-year period. What Scherzer had to say recently may have given Cohen pause and concern.

Scherzer, 38, who posted an elite 1.98 ERA in 11 regular season starts with the Dodgers, blames the Los Angeles Dodgers for his dead hand.
Scherzer, in reducing his workload, eventually compromised his performance.

With the Washington Nationals in 2019, he averaged 103 pitches per game in far more games. But he started in just 11 regular seasons with the Dodgers, averaging only 94 pitches. In addition, Scherzer was forced to make a premature exit in 2 of his 11 runs down the stretch. One was due to a rain delay against the Phillips in early August where he went to just 3.1 ip and bowled just 58 pitches and the other due to suffering from a tight hamstring against the Braves in early September, where he went ip 6 and 76. pitches thrown. He said that he could have easily played two more innings in both the matches.

Scherzer said the Dodgers watching his pitch count diminished his ‘working capacity’. Ultimately, he was ‘compromised’ as a result and was unable to perform as he did during the 2019 postseason when he helped lead the Nationals to the World Series Championship. Having dealt with the Dodgers on the deadline, Scherzer averaged 94 pitches per start, compared to 103 pitches per start with the Nations in 2019.

He also reported that in 2019 he began twelve of his twenty-seven four days of rest, which is 44% of the time. With the Dodgers, the four-game stat was just 36%. He claimed that the Dodgers used them differently than they were used to and did not take them out completely. He said that if the Dodgers had used him like the Nationals, he probably wouldn’t have experienced the dead arm issue at the end of the season.

On Monday, the Post confirmed the star pitcher and the Mets have agreed a three-year, $130 million deal, but there’s more to Scherzer than meets the eye.

And, speaking of the eyes, the right hand has two different colors. His left eye is brown and his right eye is blue.

The 37-year-old ace has a condition called heterochromia iridis, which causes color differences in the iris (the colored part of the eye).

Scherzer has suffered from the disease from a young age, and is proud of her distinctive looks. It is featured on his MLB bobbleheads and an image of him that appeared on the scoreboard in National Park to celebrate his strikeout.

“I’ve always celebrated it. Whether you like it or not, I’m the one,” Shazer said via NBC Sports. “I’ve got a blue and a brown, there’s nothing I can do about it.”

The Mets right-hander, growing up, would photograph animals that had similar eyes. He also adopted dogs with heterochromia iridis.

Scherzer is one of several stars who live with the condition, including actresses Kate Bosworth, Mila Kunis and Jen Seymour, and actor Christopher Walken.

In 2012, after the Tigers won the American League pennant, Scherzer wore custom heterochromic glasses for the celebration. The eyewear consisted of two different colored lenses, and was a gift from Erica May, his girlfriend at the time.

Scherzer rocked the goggles again in 2013, when Detroit secured the split with a win over the Twins.

He went 15-4 with a 2.46 ERA this season between the Nationals and the Dodgers, before landing in New York. He was being considered for this year’s NL Cy Young Award, which he has won three times, but lost to the Brewers’ Corbin Burns.

Scherzer’s new contract with the Mets averages $43.33 million.

Editor’s Note: This story was written in 2016. We’ve updated it with Max Scherzer in Arizona set to pitch Friday night against the Diamondbacks for the Nationals.

On December 8, 2009, the Arizona Diamondbacks sent pitcher Max Scherzer to the Detroit Tigers as part of a three-team trade with the New York Yankees.

Arizona acquired Ian Kennedy and Edwin Jackson in the deal. The Tigers also fielded Daniel Schlereth, Phil Coke and Austin Jackson. The Yankees got Curtis Granderson.

We can’t help but think about how ever Scherzer does something special on the baseball field.

And the Washington Nationals star, who is set to start against the Diamondbacks on Friday night at Chase Field, has done many special things on the field.
