Scherzer took a ball off the face when in the box for pitcher's BP. He was bunting and it came off the bat. This was caught by MASN cameras. He's with the trainer now, Martinez said.— Todd Dybas (@Todd_Dybas) June 18, 2019
As you can see in the video above, Scherzer attempts to bunt the ball and the ball deflects off his bat and hits him right in the face.
