Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson says he never could have expected the team would get off to the best start in franchise history.
“The team is playing great, they’re gritty, they come back. Mickey’s done a great job. It’s been fun to watch for me and I’m sure for the fans as well,” Alderson told WOR’s “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning.”
The Mets are 10 and 1, representing the best start ever for the organization.
The bad news is that catcher Travis d’Arnaud may need Tommy John surgery. Alderson said the doctors made a recommendation and d’Arnaud is expected to make a decision today.
“It’s really unfortunate that this injury has occurred to Travis. He’s had other injuries in the past. This is as severe as anything he’s ever incurred,” Alderson said.
He said teams have contacted him about potential moves, but Alderson said he’s not actively looking to make a trade. He said he’s just trying to be aware of what’s available.
