The Metz turn off to a slow start at 3-4, and loud relief Edwin Diaz did not help questions. Diaz, who the Mets had hoped to bounce back this year after his first season with the team in 2019, has earned a run in two of three appearances this year. He fought on Thursday, losing the Red Sox, allowing four of the five strikers to reach base. Manager Luis Rojas then told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com and other reporters that Mets bigwigs would discuss whether to use Diaz in situations with a high level of forward leverage. Given that Diaz has thrown only 2 1/3 innings this season, it is too early to say that he will not bounce. However, it’s amazing to see how far he fell after a stunning run with the Sailors in 2016-18. Mets’ decision to trade Diaz and the second founder Robinson Kano continues to look worse and worse.
- Infielder Jed Lowry joined Metz in the same offseason as Diaz and Kano, but he almost played for the club. Now in the second season of a two-year, $ 20 million contract, various injuries have limited Lowry to nine games and eight record appearances as Matt. He has not played this season, and the reason became clearer on Thursday. It turns out that Lowry is facing PCL laziness in his left knee, according to general manager Brody Van Wagen. It is still unknown whether Lowry will play for the Mets this season.
- Red Sox lefthander Eduardo Rodriguez There have been no coronavirus complications this season, but chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom told WEEI’s Greg Hill on Thursday (b / w: Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com) that they believe he will perform this year. “We expect to return it “ said Bloom. “I couldn’t tell you exactly when. Apparently we were lucky that his complications were very mild in terms of severity.” On July 7, Rodriguez was on the list of injuries after being tested for the virus, and has recently been dealing with heart issues related to the disease. If he is healthy, he will undoubtedly become a starter №1 in the Boston staff, which is full of problems.
- The Tigers place fat Cameron Maybin In the list of injured through a tense square, Evan Woodbury of MLive.com relays. Maybin was injured on Thursday, only the sixth game, as the once-advertised Tigers Avenue returned to Detroit for the third retreat. The club signed Maybin for a one-year deal with a free agency worth $ 1.5 million.
