After an unfortunate incident at batting practice on Tuesday, it’s unclear if Nats’ pitching ace Max Scherzer will play against the Phillies on Wednesday.
Scherzer was practicing laying down bunts when a ball skipped off his bat and hit him in the nose. He walked off the field with a bloody nose. The Nationals confirmed that his nose was broken, and that it was to be determined if he would play Wednesday.
