EDWIN DIAZRP, NEW YORK METS
Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters on Wednesday that Edwin Diaz could be called on to get more than three outs now.
The Mets had been adamant that Diaz would only pitch an inning in each appearance. The Mets have said a lot of things. The bridget to get to the star closer has been an issue, so New York could call on the 25-year-old if/when the setup men struggle in the eighth inning. There's a long-term worry about overuse with Diaz, but the right-hander should get a fair share of four-plus out saves now.
