New York Mets star pitcher Max Scherzer will be placed on the injured list after exiting his last start with fatigue, manager Buck Showalter told reporters on Wednesday.

It's been that type of year for Scherzer. The veteran ace missed seven weeks in his debut season with the Mets after suffering a strained left oblique, and he caused a stir on Sept. 3 after he was forced to leave a start early with left side fatigue.

Luckily for the Mets, that injury didn't end up being serious. Scherzer almost immediately downplayed it.
