Maybe Brodie Van Wagenen knows what he’s doing.
Jarred Kelenic, a former Mets general manager who traded in a deal that brought Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano to the Mets, was sent to Triple-A after struggling heavily in the majors.
This 21-year-old outfielder is slashed. .096/.185/.193 with .378 OPS and is in the midst of a 0-to-39 stretch, the longest no-hitting streak this season.
There are many ads for the highest potential customers to call. Especially when he went deep and hit three times in his second game. But his work fell apart after that. And now the first-round Mets picks are back in the minor leagues.
Meanwhile, Diaz has bounced back after a shaky first season in Queens, going on a 3.09 ERA this year with 10 saves in 11 innings for the first Mets. The same cannot be said for Cano, who was suspended by Major League Baseball. After testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug a second time, the only other chance the Mets gave up on the deal was right-hander Justin Dunn, throwing well before going to the IL native Long Island. Land was 1-2 with 3.18 ERA on nine hits.
