    News

    Diaz gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning while striking out one to record his seventh save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Cardinals.

    Impact

    Not much has gone right in the Mets' bullpen staff to begin the season, but the former Mariner has been as advertised in the closer role. Diaz now has a 1.17 ERA and 14:2 K:BB through 7.2 innings, and he has yet to blow a save opportunity.

    Diaz pitched a scoreless inning and struck out three on the way to a save Monday against the Phillies.

    Impact

    Diaz had no trouble slamming the door in this one, fanning all three batters he faced on just 11 pitches. After the game, skipper Mickey Callaway explained that he won't be using Diaz to record more than three outs in a contest during the regular season, and that the right-hander won't pitch in a tie game on the road in an effort to manage his innings, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. While it may be possible that Diaz is asked to toss more than one frame later down the road in a postseason game, the organization intends to practice bullpen management. The 25-year-old has looked sharp through eight appearances in 2019 and owns a 1.35 ERA with six saves and 13 strikeouts over 6.2 innings.

    Diaz allowed two hits and struck out two batters to record a scoreless ninth inning pick up his fifth save of the season Thursday against the Braves.

    Impact

    Diaz made things a bit interesting, allowing a leadoff single and then a double with two outs. However, he managed to strike out Freddie Freeman -- who represented the tying run -- to end the game. Though his 1.24 WHIP is inflated from his exceptional results last season, Diaz figures to remain an elite closer and already has 10 strikeouts in 5.2 innings of work.

    News

    Diaz struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to secure the save against the Nationals on Saturday.

    Impact

    Diaz is now 4-for-4 in save opportunities and has given up only two hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. The 25-year-old has been as good as advertised thus far after being acquired from the Mariners in December.

    News

    Diaz recorded only one out to earn his third save of the season Wednesday against the Marlins.

    Impact

    Diaz got Curtis Granderson -- who represented the tying run -- to fly out to end the game. He was called in after the Luis Avilan and Robert Gsellman allowed a combined four runs to the Marlins in the ninth inning. Diaz already has three saves this season, pitching just 2.2 innings to earn them.
