Mets manager Buck Showalter said Scherzer’s injury presents an opportunity for other guys to step up.

The perfect world is you’re self-sustaining with your own people,” Egli ha detto, attraverso MLB.com. “There’s another opportunity for somebody to step up. And I think it creates good morale in the organization when Tylor Megill and (David) Peterson… think that we’re going to look within first, before we start coveting somebody else’s players. We’d like to have the answers be here.
