I really don’t know how true this is, however I came across an interesting tweet earlier and I thought it was worth having a conversation over.
It’s being said that Lowrie is upset with how the Front Office and medical staff gave him multiple diagnosis throughout the last couple of years.
It looks like that he may have gotten his own diagnosis and would’ve rather opted for surgery as opposed to the rehab route that he ended up taking. While hindsight is 20/20, it’s hard to ignore if Lowrie was right.
Does this give Lowrie the right to be mad or upset with the Mets or vice versa? Here my dumb-ass was sitting around, being mad at Lowrie. However, this may have been a blunder by BVW and front office. Especially since Lowrie has accumulated a total of seven at-bats over the stretch of a season and a shortened season, as well as $20M.
Weigh in with your opinions because I feel that this might be one of those things we never will get to the bottom of.
“Listen, this has kind of been a topic for a while,” said Lowrie, who the Mets said was dealing with left knee soreness, which they didn’t expect to be a big deal, 17 months ago. “Like I said, I want to do everything I can, everything that the team is going to ask me to do to make sure that we are focused as a team on our goal.”
New York Mets manager Luis Rojas told the media on the first day of workouts that he’ll be keeping close tabs with the Mets’ performance staff.
“At this point, we’re in a 60-game sprint right now, and I don’t want to create any distractions,” he said Sunday. “I just want to mitigate everything that I can, manage it the best I can and do whatever I can do to help this team win in this short amount of time. Because we have such a talented group in here that I don’t want to create any distractions.”
When asked if Lowrie’s tenure with the Mets will cause any distractions in this abstract season, the veteran answered…
“That’s something that I’ll leave up to the Twitter-verse,” Lowrie said. “All I can say is I am doing, as a professional, everything I can to get on the field.”
Utility-man Jed Lowrie signed a two-year deal with the Mets prior to the 2019 season for $20M and has seven at bats with the Orange and Blue.
Anthony DiComo of Mets.com is reporting that there isn’t a ton of optimism surrounding utility man Jed Lowrie. Rojas told the media on the first day of workouts that he’ll be keeping close tabs with the Mets’ performance staff.
As of now, there’s no telling when Lowrie will hit the field however it’s likely that it will take the veteran a good amount of time to get himself game ready.
Lowrie signed a two-year deal with the Mets prior to the 2019 season for $20M and has seven at bats with the Orange and Blue.
Mets manager Mickey Callaway admitted to the media today that Lowrie is still not close to returning to a rehab assignment and let reporters know that the utility infielder is suffering from more than one injury.
The Mets seem genuinely unclear with what is actually wrong with Jed Lowrie.
Updated on June 17, 2019: Jed Lowrie once again has a locker in the Mets clubhouse. There was no reason given yet as to why it was temporarily removed.
Per Tim Healey via Twitter, Brodie Van Wagenen has said this about the infielder, “left side has caused him problems.” The Mets General Manager would not go further into detail about Lowrie’s injury and status.
On an interesting side note, Jed Lowrie’s locker has been removed from the Citi Field clubhouse.
The 33-34 Orange and Blue head back to Flushing, Queens where they’ll be waiting for the arrival of the 33-33 St. Louis Cardinals.
St. Louis will send the 4-3 Jack Flaherty to the mound to take on a potentially surging Mets team. The 23 year old righty owns a 4.08 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, as well as 73 strikeouts over 68.1 innings pitched and and 13 starts.
Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the home team Mets for his 14th start of the season. The reigning N.L. Cy Young owns a 3-6 record with a 3.45 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 94 strikeouts over 75.2 innings pitched. In his last 7 starts, he’s pitched 42.2 innings while striking out 45 and maintaining a 3.16 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
Against the Cardinals throughout his career, deGrom is 4-2 with a 4.21 ERA against the red birds.
Newly signed infielder Jed Lowrie now has a Grade 1 hamstring strain, setting back his Mets debut. It was believed that the Mets could possibly get him during this National series however, now that won’t be possible.
Lowrie signed a two year deal withthe Mets that’sworth $20M and was slated to be the team’sstarting 3rd baseman. Todd Frazier and J.D. Davis have been filling in, with Davis now poised to potentially take over the job in the near future.
