Max Scherzer (R) Headshot

Scherzer has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with neck inflammation, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Scherzer had an early August start cut off after just one inning due to spasms in the right side of his neck. Friday night, the issue reappeared on the left side. The Nationals are the owners of a 14-game lead in the National League East, so they won't take any chances with their ace. Expect him to miss two starts, but unless the injury becomes aggravated, his stay on the disabled list should be a short one. He'll need the stretch run to get back into shape for the playoffs.

Mark Melancon (R) Headshot

Melancon said Friday that he is considering surgery to fix an elbow issue that has been bothering him since 2012, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melancon said the problem wasn't the same elbow injury that kept him off the field from June 27 through August 12 this year. But with the Giants wholly out of the National League playoff picture, this might be the perfect time for Melancon to undergo surgery and still be ready to go by the start of the 2018 campaign. Either way, don't expect Melancon to contribute much in San Francisco's bullpen down the stretch; he hasn't seen a save opportunity since June 20.
