Max Scherzer Not Planning On Waiving His No-Trade Clause

When asked if he'd be willing to waive his no-trade clause again at this year's trade deadline, Texas Rangers right-hander Max Scherzer said, "Yeah, I'm not gonna do that...we're gonna play better baseball. It's gonna be a moot point t even talk abut...we're gonna win here." Scherzer has waived his no-trade clause to facilitate a trade in three of the last five years, but it sounds like that isn't in the cards in 2024. The Rangers have won five straight heading into Wednesday's action and are 5.5 games behind the American League West-leading Seattle Mariners, while they sit seven games out of the final wild-card spot in the AL. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer had back surgery in the offseason and suffered a setback with his thumb along the way, so he's only managed to make four starts to this point for Texas. He's looked good in those four starts, giving up eight runs (four earned) while walking only three and striking out 17 in 23 1/3 innings.

Max Scherzer Gets The Green Light To Start Friday

Texas Rangers right-hander Max Scherzer (thumb) has been cleared to make his next start on Friday in Baltimore against the Orioles after reporting some thumb soreness following his 2024 debut on Sunday against the Kansas City Royals. Scherzer impressed after coming off the 60-day injured list against KC, tossing five scoreless innings while giving up just one hit, walking none and striking out four. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer had offseason back surgery and then suffered a setback with his thumb during his rehab, which is why he didn't make his season debut until this past Sunday. He appears to have avoided a serious issue with his thumb, although fantasy managers shouldn't expect an encore performance on Friday against the strong lineup of the O's.

Rangers Monitoring Max Scherzer's Thumb

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Max Scherzer (thumb) came away from Sunday's start against the visiting Kansas City Royals with a little thumb soreness, which impacts his grip strength going forward. The coaching and training staff will continue to monitor Scherzer as he prepares for a light bullpen session on Tuesday, but manager Bruce Bochy still expects him to be good to go on Friday in Baltimore for a showdown against the Orioles in his next scheduled start. The 39-year-old veteran right-hander made his season debut against the Royals on Sunday, tossing five scoreless innings and appearing to come away unscathed in Texas' win, but fantasy managers will have to monitor Scherzer's status throughout the week and consider him day-to-day before he's evaluated again on Tuesday.
