  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Blows second save

    Diaz blew the save after allowing one run on two hits and two walks across one inning during Thursday's 7-6 win over the Cardinals. He struck out two .

    Diaz allowed a game-tying RBI single to Paul Goldschmidt in the top of the ninth but was able to limit the damage by striking out Juan Yepez. The 28-year-old right-hander is 9-for11 in save opportunities to start the year, and his strikeout numbers (32 punchouts through 17 innings) are on pace with the best closers in the league.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Collects ninth save

    Diaz picked up his ninth save of the season in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, giving up a hit and a walk but striking out three in a scoreless ninth inning.

    The 28-year-old righty recorded all his outs via strikeout for the second straight appearance, continuing a dominant stretch that has seen Diaz fan multiple batters in 11 of his 16 outings to begin the season. He boasts an eye-popping 50.0 percent strikeout rate that would be the best of his career if he can keep it up, and Diaz's 1.69 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and nine saves in 10 chances aren't too shabby either.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Fans side for eighth save

    Diaz earned the save against the Mariners on Saturday, striking out all three batters he faced in a perfect ninth inning.

    Diaz was tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the ninth inning and did so in dominant fashion, striking out a trio of batters on 18 pitches. The right-hander has worked exactly one inning in all 15 of his appearances on the season, and this was the third time that he struck out the side. Diaz has been one of the game's best closers again in 2022, tallying eight saves in nine chances while posting a 1.80 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 27:5 K:BB.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Racks up third save

    Diaz walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his third save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Cardinals.

    It's the first time in nine appearances this season Diaz failed to strike anyone out, but he still got the job done. He still boasts a dominant 40.0 percent strikeout rate, however, leading to a sparkling 2.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over nine innings.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Nails down second save

    Diaz walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his second save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

    The right-hander has seen only three save chances through his first eight appearances this season, but that's been a product of the Mets' offense piling up the runs most nights. Diaz has been sharp when called upon regardless of the situation, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB through eight innings, and there's little doubt the saves will come.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Blows save but notches win

    Diaz (1-0) got the win during Friday's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks, blowing the save by allowing one run on one hit with two strikeouts in the ninth inning.

    Pitching for the second straight night and for the third time in four days, Diaz retired the first two batters in the ninth before serving up a game-tying home run to Daulton Varsho. New York rallied with a run in the top of the tenth to take the lead and put Diaz in line for his first victory of the season. Despite the slip up, Diaz possesses a 2.57 ERA with 12 strikeouts in seven innings and should be locked into the closer role.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Back in action

    Diaz was activated off the bereavement list Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The Mets' bullpen struggled in Diaz's absence, with Trevor May (arm) and Seth Lugo combining to allow five runs in the eighth inning Monday against the Phillies, leading to a loss. Diaz should immediately reclaim the closer role upon his return.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Notches first save

    Diaz gave up two hits and struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his first save of the season in a 2-0 win over the Phillies.

    Making his first appearance since his return from the bereavement list, Diaz needed 23 pitches (16 strikes) to close out the victory. The right-hander topped out at 99.6 mph with his fastball and appears back in the form that allowed him to rack up 32 saves with a 34.6 percent strikeout rate in 2021.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Heading to bereavement list

    Diaz will be placed on the bereavement list by the Mets on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Diaz didn't appear in Friday's win over the Nationals, and he'll miss between three and seven games following the death of his grandfather. He'll reclaim his role as the Mets' closer once he rejoins the team, but Seth Lugo, Adam Ottavino and Trevor May are candidates for ninth-inning work during Diaz's absence.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Looks sharp Thursday

    Diaz struck out two in a perfect inning of work during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

    Entering the game in the second inning and facing a Miami lineup mostly made up of big-league regulars, Diaz got Joey Wendle swinging and Brian Anderson looking before Nick Fortes tapped a weak grounder back to the right-hander for the final out of the frame. Diaz heads into his fourth season with the Mets having gone 64-for-80 on save chances during his tenure with the team, and another 30-plus saves in 2022 seems well within reach.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Gets $10.2 million from Mets

    Diaz and the Mets agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $10.2 million deal to avoid arbitration, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    After going 32-for-38 in save chances and producing a 3.45 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 25.7 K-BB% over 62.2 innings in 2021, Diaz will be rewarded with a $3.2 million salary increase in his final year of arbitration. Though all three of those ratios represented dramatic steps back from his marks during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign, Diaz was still one of MLB's better-performing endgamers. Despite having some high-profile blowups on his resume over the past couple years, Diaz looks like one of the safer closer investments on draft day.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Scoops up 31st save

    Diaz struck out two in a perfect seventh inning to claim his 31st save of the season Tuesday in the Mets' 5-2 win over the Marlins in the first game of a doubleheader.

    Since blowing back-to-back save chances against the Nationals earlier this month, Diaz has responded by allowing only one unearned run over his subsequent seven appearances while nabbing three saves along the way. Though his 3.50 ERA is higher than fantasy managers might have anticipated, a 2.52 FIP, 1.07 WHIP and a 25.2 K-BB% all exemplify how dependable he's been at the back of the New York bullpen, despite some high-profile blowups.
