2B - NYM - IL60
Jed Lowrie (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2020 season.
Thus ends the tragic Mets tenure of Jed Lowrie. He signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the club prior to the 2019 campaign and wound up playing in just nine games between the two seasons. He's currently dealing with PCL laxity in his left knee. Lowrie will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal this offseason.
Jed Lowrie is set to undergo a series of injections to help alleviate pain in his knee.
It's unlikely that we see Lowrie play for the Mets this year. The 36-year-old played in just nine games a season ago.
Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen says Jed Lowrie has been diagnosed with PCL laxity in his left knee.
“We think the player can help us ... the goal would be to get him back to contribute,” Van Wagenen said. Lowrie signed a two-year deal prior to the 2019 season and has played just nine games with the club thus far. It seems unlikely he makes an impact in 2020.
The Mets placed Jed Lowrie on the 10-day IL with left knee discomfort.
The 36-year-old infielder has reportedly looked good at the plate during summer camp but is still struggling while running the bases and playing defense. He appeared in just nine games for the Mets last year and it's unclear if he'll make much of an impact at all in 2020.
Jed Lowrie's lack of mobility from his various injuries is likely going to keep him from joining the Mets on Opening Day. In particular, his base running and defense has not progressed enough to warrant inclusion.
Lowrie always stood just an outside shot, at best, to make the Opening Day roster. At this point, only look for Lowrie to get playing time if the Mets have several infielders go down with injuries.
