Just when Mets fans thought it couldn’t get any worse after Edwin Diaz was lost for the year with a patellar tendon tear to his right knee, word came down Saturday that outfielder Brandon Nimmo is week-to-week after an awkward slide into second base during a spring training game.

Mets General Manager Billy Eppler called the injury a “low-grade” sprain, and is optimistic about his timetable. There is are still 12 days until Opening Day.

Meanwhile Will Simon of the Athletic is reporting that Mets owner Steve Cohen has provided closer Edwin Diaz with a personal trainer and nutritionist to help him in his road to recovery.
