The Mets are sticking with Edwin Diaz.
The 25-year-old right-hander has pitched poorly throughout his first season in New York and he surrendered a crucial two-run homer to Victor Robles on Sunday in the ninth inning of the team’s 7-4 loss to the Nationals.
Mets manager Mickey Callaway addressed Diaz’s struggles when he met with reporters after the game.
“It’s been tough,” Callaway said, via SNY. “The common denominator in all of his homers is that they’re right down the middle. We didn’t execute a pitch. That’s normally what happens when you give up a home run. But we’re going to work hard and be diligent in getting the ball where we need to. We still have faith in Edwin.”
