Starling Marte and Edwin Diaz make progress in rehab – The Denver Post

While September is all about the Flushing kids, the Mets continue to get good news about one of their veterans. Starling Marte was back at Citi Field on Saturday and is going in the right direction as he rehabilitates from his groin injury.

The 34-year-old received an injection in his right groin on August 8 and has been on the injured list ever since. With the Mets virtually out of contention for a playoff berth, they won’t be rushing their veteran’s return as their eyes are on 2024.

“Do I expect him to play again this year? I don’t have any expectations one way or the other yet,” manager Buck Showalter said ahead of Saturday’s game against the Mariners. “We really like where he is. We must achieve this not only for this year but for next year.

“And we’re ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen.”

Marte’s underperformance this season surprised many after posting an OPS of .814 in 2022. However, a double groin operation in the offseason followed by lingering discomfort could be pinpointed as the reason for these difficulties.

The outfielder is averaging .248/.301/.324 with five home runs and 28 RBIs in 86 games this season. Showalter weighs the pros and cons of bringing Marte into action before the end of this season.

“I’m not really convinced that [Marte needs to or doesn’t need to play again]“said Showalter. “There are pros and cons. We will physically do what is best for them. Because whatever it might mean to them, if it’s not in their physical best interests, it’s a bad idea. »


It’s been a long season without the Trumpets playing at Citi Field, however, Edwin Diaz was pitching again at Citi Field on Friday.

The right-hander continues to rehabilitate a torn patellar tendon he suffered during a World Baseball Classic celebration in March. Showalter tries not to watch the 29-year-old’s bullpen sessions closely.

“I try not to go over there and stand behind him and say ‘oh, how does that feel? ‘” Showalter said. “He’s a big guy with his hips and to do that you have to get on that leg. These are the things I research and sports scientists [are looking for].”

Diaz signed a five-year-a-day, $102 million contract after the 2022 World Series ended.


Before Saturday’s game, the Mets recalled right-hander Grant Hartwig and offered Denyi Reyes to Triple-A Syracuse.

Hartwig has appeared in 19 games with the Mets this season, with a 4.74 ERA. The right-hander will return to the bullpen, providing more depth for Showalter.

Reyes boasts a 6.23 ERA in 8 games this season. His most recent outing came against the Texas Rangers on Aug. 30, with a 5.1 inning pitch that allowed two runs on three hits while striking out three. As Reyes returns to the minors, Jose Quintana will start against the Nationals on Tuesday.
