The New York Mets say three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer will be out six to eight weeks with a strained oblique muscle in his left side. Scherzer left last night’s start with two out in the sixth following 87 pitches, signaling to the dugout that he was done for the night. An MRI revealed the injury, which leaves the Mets without their two best starters. Jacob DeGrom has been out since spring training because of a right scapula stress reaction.
