Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer returned to the mound for the first time since July 25 on Thursday night, but he knows he still has to monitor his back injury.
After getting through four innings of work against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Scherzer played catch without incident on Friday. He admitted, however, that the rhomboid strain in his back cannot be assumed to be completely behind him.
