The Mets have been upfront about their injury situation. Unfortunately, there’s a lot for them to talk about. The latest of consequence is shortstop Amed Rosario’s sore left knee.
Rosario didn’t return today against Houston, and still hasn’t undergone an MRI since leaving Saturday’s game. The Mets are calling it “left knee irritation,’’ but Rosario said: “I felt some sort of tightness about the knee. That’s what I felt. … On Saturday I felt a little bit of pain.’’ (Monday) I tried to run a little bit again, but not on the same level as Saturday, so it’s going down.’’
Opening Day is three weeks from tomorrow, and Rosario said he’s now “starting from zero.’’
Is it time to worry about making the Opening Day roster? If this continues to linger and doctors find something today, maybe it is.
The Mets finally gave Rosario an MRI today which came back negative.
