BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (WBNG) - New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer will make a rehab start on Tuesday night for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies as they host the Reading Fightin Phils.

Scherzer has been out with an oblique injury and this will be his first time pitching in a game since he suffered the injury in a May 18 start against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The 37-year old right hander is a three time Cy Young award winner and 2019 World Series champion. He is in his first season with the Mets after spending time with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals, and Los Angeles Dodgers previously in his career.

Mets catcher James McCann will also be starting behind the plate. The 32-year old veteran has been with the Ponies since last Thursday rehabbing a left wrist injury.

First pitch Tuesday night is set for 6:35 p.m. at Mirabito Stadium.
