If something was missing from the disastrous season of the New York Mets, it was losing one of their pitchers due to an unusual injury, as happened this Tuesday with the Venezuelan pitcher. Carlos Carrasco, who has fractured a finger after a weight fell on him while he was exercising in the gym.
Mets manager Buck Showalter, recounted that during an oversight in the Citi Field gym, Carrasco dropped a 50-pound weight on his right little finger and fractured it.. Shortly thereafter, doctors placed a pin in his finger and sent him to the disabled list before the game against the Washington Nationals.
After making the news known, Showalter hinted that the player might not continue in the Big Apple for the next season.“He’s going to pitch again next year for somebody, we’ll see if it’s for us or not.”said.
In turn, he was disappointed by the performance of the Venezuelan right-hander who, like the rest of the team, was well below what was expected, and it is that He made 20 starts in which he barely covered 90 innings posting a 6.80 ERA with a 3-8 record and a 1,700 WHIP.
On this, the Mets manager was kind and explained that the 36-year-old pitcher “was out of control in the area a lot (…) It was more or less a control thing. He had some good starts this year, but not as many as he or we would have liked.”, he pointed out.
Carlos Carrasco will enter free agency at the end of the 2023 MLB season and it doesn’t seem like he’s in the Mets’ plans for next year, however, It doesn’t seem like he’s going to retire either, so it’s possible Showalter is right and ends up with another organization.
the venezuelan He was coming off a season in which he went 15-7 with a 3.97 RBI percentage in 29 starts.a performance that was enough for the Mets to exercise the option of one more year for $14 million dollars, however, his performance and that of the rest of the team were not as expected.
“We leaned on him and it just didn’t work for him,” the veteran manager said of the Caribbean law campaign.
