Max Scherzer ready to start Game 7

Max Scherzer

The cortisone shot Max Scherzer received for his neck area apparently has kicked in.

Scherzer was able to throw off flat ground in Houston on Tuesday and declared himself ready to pitch in Game 7 of the World Series if the Washington Nationals force it.

Here is a look at Scherzer throwing.

Scherzer was initially slated to be the team’s Game 5 starter at home on Sunday but he woke up in tremendous pain and was unable to pitch that day. The Nats went with Joe Ross instead and lost 7-1.

To combat the pain, Scherzer received a cortisone shot on Sunday that takes about 48 hours to take effect. He now says he will be ready for Game 7.

The Nationals will send Stephen Strasburg to the mound in Game 6 on Tuesday against Justin Verlander needing to win to force a deciding seventh game.
