Just 48 hours after his injury Diaz is taking an optimistic approach in aiming to return following a disastrous knee injury following Puerto Rico's win over the Dominican Republic Wednesday. Diaz dominated to the tune of a 1.31 ERA and an eye-popping 50.2% K% across 61 appearances in 2022, racking up 32 saves in the process. He's certainly a dynasty league stash while anything he could give the Mets this season would be welcomed by the club with open arms.
