Baseball The injuries have already started for the New York Mets Lowrie and Frazier injuries leave Mets infield uncertain for Opening Day. by Jesse Natale February 26, 2019 New year, new general manager, same old New York Mets. Just a day into spring training, major offseason signing, Jed Lowrie, felt discomfort in his knee. After sending Lowrie to New York to get an MRI, the Mets didn’t seem to think anything was going to be too serious. It turns out Lowrie has a knee sprain, jeopardizing his chances of being ready for Opening Day. The 34-year-old infielder is frustrated, and did not seem too optimistic about when he may return. After the upsetting news on Lowrie, it only took several more days for another Mets infielder to go down with an injury. 33-year-old Todd Frazier experienced oblique tightness yesterday and after receiving an MRI found out he has an oblique strain. A frustrated Frazier has had this issue before, dealing with an oblique issue back in 2017 with the Chicago White Sox during spring training. Frazier is officially another Mets infielder that may not be ready for the season opener. There is currently no timetable for his return. It’s a good thing Brodie stacked up on infield depth this offseason, bringing aboard not only Lowrie, but J.D. Davis, and Adeiny Hechavarria. The Mets also have T.J Rivera, and Luis Guillorme, who now have a solid opportunity to win a job this spring; and let’s not forget about Jeff McNeil, who now has a golden opportunity to win back his old job as an infielder.
