Max Scherzer Pitches with Modified Grip
Max Scherzer completed a bullpen session with a modified grip. Instead of using 2 fingers to throw his fastball like most pitchers do he used 3. Scherzer isn’t one that like to sit out and take things slow when he is hurt, but he has said that he won’t push though pain because it could lead to future injury. He will continue to pitch with his 3 finger grip to build arm strength, but once he is healed he will go back to his normal grip. However, it’s anyone’s guess as to when he will be fully healthy as his knuckle injury hasn’t showed any signs of going away.
