With only one start in the month of July due to a strained rhomboid muscle, Max Scherzer is back throwing.
Martinez said Scherzer "wasn't great, but felt OK" after throwing yesterday. They may give him a couple days off before he throws again. Suffice it to say, he's still not ready to throw off a mound.

Scherzer landed back on the IL a few days after a July 25th outing against the Colorado Rockies in which he pitched five innings. An MRI revealed he had a strained rhomboid muscle right after his fight with an inflamed bursa sac in the upper back.
Although the Nationals are in desperate need of Scherzer's services right now, one thing's for certain: they won't rush him back.
