Video: Mets’ Star Edwin Diaz is Injured Celebrating Puerto Rico Win Over The Dominican Republic

Ray Rauth Mar 15, 2023

Last season, casual baseball fans were introduced to New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz, after his entrance went viral across social media.

A video of Diaz went viral Wednesday night for all the wrong reasons. In a win-or-go -home game, Edwin Diaz closed out a 5-2 win over the Dominican Republic, sending Puerto Rico to the next round of the World Baseball Classic.

Unfortunately, for Diaz, Puerto Rico, and the Mets, Diaz was injured while celebrating the win with his teammates.

I hope Diaz is okay, but his leg was facing the wrong direction when he was being carried off the field.

I don’t want to make light of the situation, but doesn’t this seem like the most Mets thing to happen? Fans of the orange and blue in New York are always ready for a worst case scenario, and tonight the curse of the Mets struck again.
