Ned Yost almost died

Last week it was reported that Ned Yost fell out of a tree on his property and broke his pelvis. The reports were very matter-of-fact like that, with the takeaway was that he was recovering in the hospital and would be fully recovered in time for spring training. It turns out, however, that his accident was far more serious than most assumed. Indeed, Yost could’ve very easily died.

Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com spoke to Yost, who is back home recuperating. He tweeted out the following from his conversation:

Thank goodness he had his cell phone with him and was able to get medical care in time.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
