Edwin Diaz (knee) will not pitch this season

Edwin Diaz (knee) will officially not return from the IL to pitch this season.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz has been progressing well and will continue to throw bullpen sessions through the end of September. It seems that if the Mets were competing for a playoff spot, there may have been a chance Diaz would have returned sooner than later. However, the Mets will play it safe with their closer and ensure he is ready to go for the start of the 2024 season.

Edwin Diaz (knee) could return later in the season

Mets manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Edwin Diaz has a chance to return later in the season.

Fantasy Impact

Showalter said his rehab going very well and that he's doing pitching-type activities. He wouldn't say if he was pitching off the mound yet and added there is an internal debate if it is worth having him return this season. Either way, it appears Diaz will be fully healthy heading into Spring Training next year.

Edwin Diaz reportedly throwing from 125-150 feet daily

New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz is reportedly throwing from 125-150 feet every day as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact

The news comes from Diaz's brother, Alexis, the All-Star closer of the Cincinnati Reds. The younger Diaz brother said Edwin is rehabbing 'pretty fast' and that he is doing really well. Despite the encouraging news, Diaz isn't likely to return before September, which might be too late for the 42-48 Mets who sit 18.5 games back in the NL East and seven games back of the final Wild Card spot in the National League.

Edwin Diaz (knee) says October is a possibility for his return

Edwin Diaz told reporters on Wednesday that everything is progressing well and depending on how he responds, he "might" pitch this season.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz mentioned October as a possibility for his return this year. He underwent surgery last month to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee. This is worth monitoring. In the meantime, David Robertson should remain the primary closer for the Mets this season.
