Marcus Stroman was probably not himself at the final start after his grandmother’s death, but the Mets are hoping he is in a better mental position after the break.
On Sunday, the “right hand” must receive the ball against the Yankees with a double in Game 1. He was removed from the missing list on Friday, four days away from the Mets. Stroman trained at the Yankee Stadium until Friday’s game against the Yankees, which was scheduled to be postponed in the rain, and manager Luis Rojas said he had to train extra during his absence. tkazdi.
In last Sunday’s game against Phillies, just days after his grandmother passed away, Stroman allowed four runs, two of which went unnoticed for more than three minutes. Overall, right hand 6-6, with 2.45 ERA.
Stroman will be pitching in his first Metro series – the Mets bought him in July 2019 after the game against the Yankees, and last year he missed the entire season.
Taijuan Walker, who started raining on Friday, is due to play for the Mets on Saturday. Tyoror Megill is scheduled for Game 2 of Sunday’s two-headed game.
David Peterson, as expected, was added to the list of injured with pain on the right side – a day after he missed the next turn in the rotation. Rojas said the team is waiting for the next test results in Peterson. The manager was unwilling to name the starting mug against the brewers on Monday, but earlier cited Corey Oswalt as an opportunity.
Michael Conforto was scheduled to manage the cargo until late, even before it was postponed. The reserve player was also on the bench in Monday’s game against the National.
Rojas said Conforto had only been on a rehabilitation assignment in Syracuse for a week to get the rest. Conforto lay in the IL for five weeks after straining his right knee.
“After we’ve been injured for a while, we’re stepping up his baseball career,” Rojas said.
Jeurys Familia and Thomas Nido, both with Brandon Nimmo, were removed from IL. Travis Blankenhorn, Thomas Sapapki and Patrick Mazeyka chose Triple-A Syracuse to create the record.
Jonathan Villar was due to play in nine games in Syracuse on Friday – the last hurdle to returning to the team, according to Rojas – but the game remained in the rain. The attacker was sent off after the calf had been supporting a right leg fracture for the past two weeks.
The Mets bought left-winger Anthony Banda with the Giants as the minor league’s third head coach, Will Toffi. Banda was appointed to Syracuse.
