“Bro yeah this is 2021 all over again” “Andddd here comes the free fall” – New York Mets fans left devastated after Carlos Carrasco suffers oblique strain

During last night’s game against the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets starter Carlos Carrasco left the game with an apparent injury. The Mets wound up losing this game 13-1 in a complete blowout. Earlier today, it was discovered that Carrasco suffered a left oblique strain and will be out for 3-4 weeks.

Carlos Carrasco underwent an MRI this morning that revealed a low-grade left oblique strain. A typical timeline for an injury of this nature is 3-4 weeks. Additional updates will be provided as appropriate.

@Mets The Braves hit off him so much he got injured 😂

So far this season, Carlos Carrasco has had a great bounceback year for the Mets. In the 2021 season, Carrasco pitched in just 12 games; he was 1-5 with a 6.04 ERA. After this season, many wrote him off and did not expect anything from him.

@Mets I mean not the worst case scenario

However, this season he has looked like a completely different pitcher compared to last year. Through 23 starts this year, Carrasco was 13-5 with a 3.92 ERA; outstanding for a fifth starter for the Mets. He really rounded out the Mets rotation, which for years always seemed a little top heavy.

@Mets Get well soon, Cookie! Time for the boys to step up like they have all year long when facing adversity like this #LGM

@Mets This obviously sucks, but it’s a blessing in disguise because he’s getting up there in age and could stand to benefit a lot by letting his body rest before a playoff push. Peterson will do way more than just hold down the fort for him.

Carrasco will miss some of the most crucial weeks of the regular season for the New York Mets. Left-hander David Peterson will likely take his place as the interim fifth starter. Through 18 appearances, Peterson is 6-2 with a 3.30 ERA. It’s safe to say that he will be a good fit for this role.

@Mets @LFGM21 We have Peterson to slip in the rotation. Should be fine. Need the injury bug to stop now.

@Mets Peterson slotting in that spot with Megil coming back should be fine. Buck letting his veteran reliever go out after a rain delay was a bad move, but it’s whatever.

Carlos Carrasco will be missed; however, this is now one of multiple recent injuries for the Mets. New York tends to always have an injury curse later in the year, which can ruin their season. Fans fear that this is turning into one of those years for the team.

@Mets Bro yeah this is 2021 all over again

Nevertheless, the Mets have one of the most powerful squads in the MLB, and cannot be stopped this second half. If they can keep this momentum going, they will be able to outlast their injuries.

The New York Mets have been red hot since the All-Star break

Despite being blown out by the Atlanta Braves last night, the Mets have been on fire recently. Since the All-Star break, the Mets have a 17-6 record, which includes a six-game win streak. They now have the second-best record in Major League Baseball, and hold a 4.5 game lead over the Braves.

@Mets Andddd here comes the free fall

@Mets Its that time of year, you guys. Mets had a nice trip…now comes the great fall.

They still have three games left in this series against Atlanta, and the Mets need to stay on their toes. Although they are one of the best teams in the league, the Braves could surpass them if they let their foot off the gas.
