Steve Cohen is already famous for spending whatever it takes to make his Mets team the most competitive it can be, and to make the franchise run as efficiently as possible.
Cohen’s employees and players consistently rave about his commitment to the organization, and it was reportedly front and center once again with his $102 million closer recovering from knee surgery.
According to Will Sammon of The Athletic, while Edwin Diaz is starting his recovery following a devastating knee injury at the World Baseball Classic, Cohen has already provided Diaz with a trainer, a nutritionist, and even a personal chef.
Per Sammon, Cohen called Diaz to tell him, “We’re going to do everything we can to get you better and take care of you.”
Diaz will likely need eight months to recover from his torn patellar tendon, and while Sammon reported that Diaz was already expressing optimism in returning this season thanks to a quick surgery, it is unlikely he will pitch in 2023. But Cohen is making sure he is taken care of.
