It seems as if we’ve seen the last of Jed Lowrie’s career with the Mets before it’s even started.
The infielder, who was a offseason acquisition for the Mets in January of 2019, has been moved to the 45-day Injured List on Sunday, three days after being diagnosed with PCL laxity — a looseness of the PCL ligament in Lowrie’s left knee that is ultimately causing him pain, according to GM Brodie Van Wagenen’s understanding of the issue.
Lowrie, in the last year of a two-year, $20 million contract with the Mets — with MLB’s coronavirus-shortened 60-game season — will likely end his career in Flushing the same way it began, on the IL.
The Mets have 51 games left, including Sunday’s against the Braves at Truist Park in Atlanta.
