The New York Mets eventually gave up advancing to the postseason despite having the best payroll ever. Will Edwin Diaz (29), who is evaluated as the beginning of that misfortune, return within this season?
On the 10th (hereafter Korean time), American sportsnet New York and others mentioned the possibility of Diaz’s return within this season after leaving after suffering a major injury.
According to this, New York Mets manager Buck Showalter said that there is a possibility that Diaz will return within this season. I can’t say for sure, but it’s possible.
However, he drew the line that he would not force Diaz’s comeback. this is natural. There is no reason to overdo it with Diaz as long as it is difficult to advance into the postseason.
The New York Mets recorded a 51-62 win rate of 0.451 in the season until the 9th. The gap with the district-leading Atlanta Braves is as much as 21 games.
Also, the gap between the Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins, tied for third place in the wild card, is 7.5 games. This is not a gap that will be easily closed in a month and a half.
Previously, Diaz defended Puerto Rico’s victory with a perfect pitch by pitching in the final 4th game of Group D in the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) final against the Dominican Republic in March.토토사이트
The problem was that Diaz suffered a serious injury during the post-victory ceremony, rupturing the patellar tendon in his right knee. Diaz was in great pain.
Diaz then underwent surgery and was out for the season. His surgery was successful. He was found to have no problem returning for the 2024 season.
A healthy Diaz is the best closer in the major leagues. Diaz went 3-1 with 32 saves and a 1.31 ERA in 62 innings in 61 games last year.
Diaz is making a quick recovery and is even being mentioned about the possibility of a comeback within this season. It remains to be seen what judgment the New York Mets will make.
