There have been many success stories this season with the New York Mets.

The starting rotation has been big, but the whole team is playing pretty well as a whole for the most part.

Another big story is that of the close Edwin Diaz, who was absolutely influential at the start of the season.

He has converted nine of his 10 save chances and has posted a 1.69 ERA so far.

Mets MLB.com reporter Anthony Dicomo noted on Twitter that Diaz has knocked out 16 of the last 25 hitters he has faced, which is a pretty impressive 64%.

Total dominance

Diaz may have struggled in his first year as a member of the Mets, but since then, he has been out of the light and has established himself as one of the best in baseball, with boys like Josh Hadar there.

He can hit 100 miles per hour with his fastball and blow up the hitters absolutely.

He certainly showed those abilities in New York’s first doubleheader game against the St. Louis Cardinals, as he reached the top of the 90’s and hit 100 more than once.

He got that bulldog mentality whenever he went to pitch.

He is not afraid to make a heater uncomfortable and make his presence known.

He did nothing less than dominate at the start of the season and Metra is one of the many reasons why he is where he is at the moment.

Diaz is someone you don’t want to face while playing in line.

He can do so much with just so many elites and his influential things.

And now he’s on a roll.

He is simultaneously a strikeout machine and a fireball.
