Rangers’ Injury Woes Continue: Latest Updates

Max Scherzer and Evan Carter received unfortunate updates as the Texas Rangers continue to battle injury woes in 2024.

Rangers Injury Woes Continue

The Texas Rangers cannot catch a break. Texas’s pitching rotation has been decimated by injuries. The Rangers’ position players have also endured trouble trying to stay on the field. Texas recently received two more unfortunate updates.

Outfielder Evan Carter, who displayed signs of stardom during the 2023 postseason, is expected to see a back specialist in Texas, per Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.  It was previously revealed that Carter was dealing with back stiffness. The Rangers are obviously hoping for the best results after Carter visits the back specialist. It will be a situation worth closely monitoring given its uncertain nature.

Meanwhile, starting pitcher Max Scherzer received a concerning injury update after already enduring a setback in his recovery from back surgery. Scherzer is reportedly dealing with more than the back issue. According to Manny Randhawa of, Scherzer revealed that team doctors believe he may be dealing with a nerve injury.

“I went back to Dallas to see the doctors. All my strength is there, it’s testing out,” Scherzer said. “Now we’re thinking this is a nerve issue. It’s the thumb, the forearm and the triceps.”

It goes without saying, but Scherzer’s update is far from ideal. There were previous rumors that suggested he may be able to return in May. Now, his potential return is clouded in uncertainty.

The 2024 Rangers Injury Epidemic 

Injuries happen in baseball. Yet, it is rare to see one team deal with as much injury trouble as the Rangers have during the 2024 campaign.

Scherzer, Jacob deGrom, and Nathan Eovaldi are just a few of the Rangers starting pitchers who are currently on the injured list. Josh Jung and Wyatt Langford are among the team’s injured position players.

Again, those are only a few of the players who are currently on the Rangers injured list. Nevertheless, Texas is still confident. They are just a half-game out of first place in the American League West following Sunday’s action. However, the Rangers will need better luck from an injury standpoint moving forward if they want to compete for a World Series title once again in 2024.
