The Dodgers, facing elimination, were set to have Max Scherzer on the bump against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night. Scherzer, arguably the favorite for this year’s Cy Young, had been dealing with a tired arm, but he believed he’d be good to go for Game 6.

Unfortunately for Los Angeles, that is not the case.

Multiple reports have confirmed that the Dodgers will be without Scherzer in Game 6 against the Braves on Saturday night. Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times first reported the news.

"You can have bad weeks. We had a bad couple of weeks at one point during the season, but it's a long season. You just have to keep doing your work, every day trying to get better and grinding things out.

From the report:

Max Scherzer was scheduled to speak to the media via Zoom soon after the Dodgers landed at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Friday night. News conferences are customary for starting pitchers the day before scheduled playoff outings and Scherzer has been slated to start Game 6 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.

But Scherzer didn’t address reporters. The team touched down at around 8:15 p.m. EDT and canceled the session minutes later because Scherzer isn’t going to start Saturday after all, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

Uh oh.

“Scherzer is experiencing general arm fatigue. No structural issues. It’s possible he could pitch in Game 7 but will depend on how he feels tomorrow,” Mike DiGiovanna reported on Saturday night.

Scherzer admitted following his earlier NLCS start that his arm was feeling “dead.” He pitched in the Wild Card game, made a start in the NLDS and pitched the ninth inning of Game 5, closing out the series.

Game 6 of the NLCS is set for Saturday at 5:08 p.m. E.T.
