The Phillies and Nats were rained out yesterday but a player still got hurt. It was Max Scherzer who broke his nose in a bunt drill, as seen in the video above.
Washington and Philly are playing a doubleheader today and Scherzer was scheduled to pitch the nightcap. There has not been official word from the Nats, but as of last night, Scherzer is still planning on taking the hill:
Scherzer is already a pretty intense and intimidating presence but if he does not take the mound in a Jason-from-Friday-the-13th-style hockey mask — with heterochromatic-paint on it to match his eyes — it’ll be a missed opportunity.
