Max Scherzer 'highly unlikely' to pitch in Game 5October 13, 2021 | 03:22 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that it's "highly unlikely" Max Scherzer will be available out of the bullpen on Thursday night in NLDS Game 5 against the Giants. Analysis: Everything remains on the table for the Dodgers in a winner-take-all elimination contest, but the plan appears to have Scherzer ready to start on Saturday night in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Braves. The 37-year-old workhorse threw a staggering 110 pitches over seven innings on Monday night in the Dodgers' Game 3 loss to the Giants. The doors seems to have been left ajar, but it seems unlikely Scherzer will make an appearance on Thursday night in Game 5, unless absolutely necessary.
