The Mets have combined Edwin Diaz’s “Stars” resume

Forget the first impression and count the first strokes instead.

Edwin Diaz, who came closer, resigned the Braves in seven innings in the ninth inning on Tuesday. It’s like a resume for the stars, which is hard to believe for anyone who has seen him enter New York.

“He’s having a great year,” manager Luis Roxas said ahead of Wednesday’s game in Atlanta. “You have to give it to order. What we all know is of special importance. [Throwing] hitting, which leads to very good things, because now you’re putting the opposing fighters into swing mode, and it’s hard to switch to vibration mode against a guy like Edwin because he has a heavy fastball and then he moves late with a slider. ” .

Against 27-year-old Diaz, those swaying in the first field are hitting .186 in 45 plate appearances. But Diaz doesn’t make it easy to master first-rate 65 percent, as they are .177 when they start the score 0-1 and .140 when they are behind in the score.

Part of the success has to do with catching a new slider designed by Diaz and pitching coach Jeremy Hefner. Braves pinched Pablo Sandoval in the ninth inning of Diaz’s first and dangerous Ronald Acuna Jr.

“He saw a fast ball in his hand. Next, you know, he finished the bat and hit that ball to the right,” Rojas said. “I think the command was key and the slider was improved.”

There is also an important aspect of the psyche.

Diaz led the big fields with 57 saves (61 chances) for the 2018 Mariners and played a key role in the commercial trade that brought Robinson Canon back to New York for five players, including top prospect Jarred Kelenich. When Kano was suspended, Jay Bruce resigned, struggling Kelenich was dropped from the Marineers ’injured list to Triple-A and Justin Dunn, and Diaz is one of only seven players to be active.

But that was a long way after turning 32 of the 43 saves for the 2019 and 2020 meetings. Diaz is ninth in the MLB in saves – six of the eight shutters ahead of him play in the National League – but he and Brewers ’silent opponent Josh Hader is the only home with at least 12 saves and not allowed to work at home.

Mets, who feel the rage of fans for not doing the expected results in Year 1, don’t often save their careers without changing the scene. But he saw Rojas Diaz, who was the quality control coach in 2019, on both sides.

“It’s a young, very talented mug,” he said. “He probably struggled with something he had never experienced in his career, and he did it in New York City. I think that made him a better person and a better mug. Now that success has lifted his spirits and made him one of the leaders in the club building. I am very happy for him. He is in a very good place now. I just have to keep doing it. “
