Dave Roberts Refutes Notion Of Dodgers' Sign-Stealing

May 31, 2019 8:17 AM

Dave Roberts is annoyed with suggestions by the New York Mets that the Los Angeles Dodgers have a "system" for knowing what pitches are coming.

On Wednesday, several Mets intimated that the Dodgers may have developed an advantage beyond the bounds of Major League rules.

"I guess if they feel ... the quality of at-bats we put up against these guys was not as a result of our talent and our preparation, then that's their decision," Roberts said. "I can't change their thoughts."

Mets Now Open To Using Edwin Diaz For Multiple Innings

May 23, 2019 8:10 AM

The New York Mets have struggled over the first quarter of the season and are now changing course on some strategies.

They will now use closer Edwin Diaz in multi-inning save situations, something they stated they wouldn't do back in April.

The previous decision was presumably to keep Diaz healthy and limit his innings early on.

In 18.2 innings in 2019, Diaz has 28 Ks, a 1.93 ERA and 11 saves.

Yoenis Cespedes Breaks Ankle In Ranch Accident

May 21, 2019 8:08 AM

Yoenis Cespedes hasn't played this season and the New York Mets may not have him for the rest of 2019.

Cespedes broke his right ankle in an accident on his ranch, the club announced on Monday.

The slugger has not played this season after undergoing surgery to remove calcification on both of his heels. Those surgeries were expected to keep him sidelined for at least half of this season.

"He had a violent fall in which he stepped in a hole and put his leg and foot in a difficult position," Brodie Van Wagenen said.
