Max Scherzer will miss at least one start for the Mets.Scherzer will not start Friday against the Marlins.

The eight-time All-Star departed his previous start with left oblique fatigue after 67 pitches.

The Mets say they anticipate Scherzer back soon, so this move is likely preventive.

The 38-year-old fireballer missed seven weeks this season with a strained left oblique.

Scherzer's slight setback is inconvenient for the Mets. Mets and Braves are 85-51 with 26 games left in the NL East.

Atlanta has been red-hot since June 1, when New York led by 10.5 games.
