Why Mets’ Mickey Callaway went to Edwin Diaz

Seth Lugo bumps Edwin Diaz to uncertain place in Mets pen

ATLANTA — As Mets manager Mickey Callaway attempts to figure out roles for his relievers, this much seems clear: Edwin Diaz will only pitch when there’s a cushion or the team is losing.

The Mets’ bullpen may be awful, but they aren’t alone

Jeurys Familia delivered his most dominant performance this season on Sunday — a 13-pitch, three-strikeout eighth inning against the Nationals. Edwin Diaz followed in the ninth with more Edwin Diaz, circa 2019 — a walk, a homer and more Citi Field boos. The Mets must keep sending both out in big spots and hope Familia...
