WASHINGTON (AP) Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer suffered a broken nose when he took a ball off his face during batting practice on Tuesday.
Scherzer was injured while attempting a bunt. The team said a CT scan was negative.
The three-time Cy Young Award winner was scheduled to start one of the two games of Washington's day-night doubleheader against Philadelphia on Wednesday. The Nationals said Scherzer's status - as well as the team's pitching plan for the doubleheader - was still to be determined.
Scherzer is 5-5 with a 2.81 ERA.
