Mets Faced Injury Plagued 2017 — CB Garrett (assignment 3)
January 28, 2018
The New York Mets came into 2017 with big expectations after making it to the World Series in 2015 and back to the playoffs in 2016 — only the second time in team history they made the playoffs in consecutive years. They were able to do this despite their continued organizational struggle to stay healthy, something that got their head trainer fired at the end of the 2017 season. The rash of injuries came back in 2017 as seven of their top eight starting pitchers missed significant time with injuries, as well as injuries to their top two hitters and closer. In the end this became too much for the Mets to make it back to the playoffs. Take a look at some of the most significant injures to the Mets most important players in the timeline below.
