ARLINGTON — The more clarity Max Scherzer gains regarding the various pains in his arm, the less clear his path toward the Rangers’ rotation becomes.

His back, which put him on the injured list to start, is fine. The right-hander said on Wednesday that specialists have determined, through the process of elimination, that the lingering pain in his triceps is being caused by nerve damage. Knowing the source might wasn’t as much of a comfort to Scherzer as he had hoped.

On Monday, he underwent MRIs on his neck and triceps. Previous imaging had shown no damage on his elbow. He has consulted with Dallas-based vascular specialist Dr. Gregory Pearl, who is known for treating thoracic outlet syndrome.

All signs point to a nerve issue, which has a touched nerve.
