New York Met's aren't naming another closer despite Edwin Diaz injury

On March 15, New York Mets all-star player Edwin Díaz tore his patellar tendon while celebrating Puerto Rico’s win against the Dominican Republic. Díaz was lifted into a wheelchair and carried off the field. He was then clinically examined by a doctor who was on the property.


Díaz tweeted in Spanish on his birthday, March 28, “I want to thank God for giving me the opportunity to celebrate another year of life with my loved ones, it's already 29, we're going to the third floor soon. Regarding my health, I feel super good, and positive in rehabilitation so I can return as soon as possible. [directly translated]”


The New York Mets general manager Billy Eppler released a statement on March 16 saying that Díaz would most likely be out for the rest of the season, he’s going to have surgery, and recovery could last for up to 8 months. He said that “to nobody’s surprise Edwin is in good spirits,” calling him a “resilient human being, and that’s why he’s the closer ‘cause the dude doesn’t get rattled.” Díaz signed a five-year $102-million contract back in 2022. writer Anothony Dicomo tweeted on Wednesday that the Mets aren’t naming another closer. Dicomo added that David Robertson is the most likely pick with his proximity and his background of 157 saves, but that Adam Ottavio and Brooks Raley could also be the pick.


The Mets open their season tonight, and their next game is Saturday, April 1st against the Miami Marlins.
