New acquisition Sam Coonrod, a right handed reliever from St. Louis, Missouri, has a high-grade strain of his right lat.
Management has yet to set a timetable in regards to a return for the reliever, however, mild to high strains will usually effect a pitchers playing status for generally weeks at a time.
Coonrod , a 30 year old, is expected to make $775k during the upcoming season as the pitcher as he’s still in his arbitration years before he reaches Free Agency in 2026.
In four seasons, Coonrod has pitched in 105 games, which actually came as a bit of a shock to me.
The pitcher has been bicoastal, as he’s spent his first two Major League seasons with the San Francisco Giants before the Philadelphia Phillies swapped 2-way player, Carson Ragsdale with Coonrod.
Baseball-Reference has Coonrod pitching 37.0 innings while sporting a 4.38 ERA and a 1-1 record while earning a save on the campaign.
Do you see Coonrod getting significant time with the Mets? Will he be a difference maker in a positive light? Please let us know what you think in the comments.
