  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Agrees to five-year deal with Mets

    Diaz and the Mets agreed to a five-year, $102 million contract Sunday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Diaz was slated to become a free agent during the offseason and would have undoubtedly drawn interest from plenty of teams, but he'll instead remain with the Mets on the largest contract for a reliever in history, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Diaz was one of the most dominant closers in baseball in 2022, converting 32 of 35 save chances while posting a 1.31 ERA and 0.84 WHIP while striking out 118 batters in 61 innings. His new agreement with the Mets includes an opt-out after the third season and a full no-trade clause as well as a $20 million team option for the 2028 season.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Snags four-out save

    Diaz got the save Tuesday versus the Brewers after he pitched 1.1 perfect innings while striking out three batters.

    Diaz entered the game with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, tasked with protecting a 7-5 lead with a runner on first. The right-hander made quick work of Rowdy Tellez, striking him out to end the frame before he set the Brewers down in order in the ninth, registering two more punchouts in the final inning. Diaz is now up to 31 saves on the campaign and has converted his last 21 save opportunities. Since the All-Star break, the closer has produced a 0.87 ERA and 0.68 WHIP with 35 strikeouts over 20.2 innings in 19 appearances while going 11-for-11 in save chances.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Mows down Dodgers for save

    Diaz earned a save against the Dodgers on Wednesday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning.

    Diaz faced a daunting task in going up against Trea Turner, Freddie Freeman and Will Smith with a one-run lead in the ninth inning, but he needed only nine pitches to set the trio down in order. In doing so, he extended his streak of successful save conversions to 19, with his last blown save coming in late May. Over 33 games since that meltdown against the Giants, Diaz has allowed only two runs over 33.2 innings while posting a 66:7 K:BB.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Notches third hold

    Diaz gave up a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless eighth inning Thursday, recording his third hold of the season in a win over the Rockies.

    With the Mets nursing a 3-1 lead and the heart of the Colorado order due up in the eighth, manager Buck Showalter turned to his closer rather than reserving Diaz for a save situation. The right-hander got the job done, while Adam Ottavino took care of the Rockies' 7-8-9 hitters in the ninth. Diaz's job as closer is in no jeopardy -- he's tied for fifth in the majors with 28 saves and sports a league-leading 17.5 K/9 -- but Showalter's willingness to use him in crucial high-leverage spots rather than exclusively in the ninth could cost him another save or two down the stretch. Two of his three holds on the year have come in his last three appearances.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Notches 27th save

    Diaz issued two walks but did not give up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in a 1-0 win over the Phillies on Saturday.

    Diaz issued a couple of free passes and allowed the winning run to get into scoring position on a successful double steal by the Phillies, but he turned to his slider on a 2-2 count to get Nick Castellanos to chase and end the close game with a dramatic strikeout. The save gives Diaz 27 on the year, which is tied for third-best in the majors. The 28-year-old closer has not given up an earned run dating back to June 18 and boasts a sparkling ERA of 1.33.
