Robinson Cano's loafing strikes again - and Mets are the victims

Robinson Cano's loafing strikes again - and Mets are the victims

NY selected Gomez's contract from Triple-A Syracuse and had him batting sixth and in right field during a 8-6 loss against the Miami Marlins Friday night.

Gomez went 0 for 3 before leaving the game in a double switch.

New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto has been diagnosed with a concussion after a nasty collision with teammate Robinson Cano on Thursday afternoon, according to The Athletic's Tim Britton.

Gomez, an All-Star for Milwaukee in 2013-14, last played for the Mets when he was a rookie in 2007.

After manager Mickey Callaway and a trainer checked on him, he left the game and was replaced by Keon Broxton. He was batting.270 with six home runs and 22 RBI in Syracuse. "The defense has been outstanding, the leadership, the baserunning". Broxton struggled in his first season with the Mets, batting.143 with just one extra-base hit in 49 at-bats over 34 games. The outfielder publicly questioned the Mets' strategy for him after Thursday's loss.


"[Cano] came up to me proactively on his own - the board said two outs - he thought there were two outs at the time", Callaway said.

We've heard of players failing to run out easy grounders or pop-ups, but rare is the lackadaisical runner on a possible double play. "We are very hopeful he is going to be back in the organization and help us at some point this year".

Conforto and Cano were chasing after a pop fly by Howie Kendrick near the right-field line in the fifth inning when Cano's shoulder connected with Conforto's jaw. "We have not lowered our expectations".

"We're trying to limit his explosive activity", Van Wagenen said before the game.
