ATLANTA (AP) — New York Mets manager Luis Rojas says he wants to get Edwin Diaz back on the mound quickly. Rojas wouldn’t say if the next outing would come in a save situation. Diaz’s role as the Mets’ closer again is being watched closely for the second straight season after the right-hander walked two batters, hit a batter and gave up a run while recording only one out in Thursday night’s 4-2 loss to Boston. The Mets’ ninth-inning options also include Seth Lugo, Jeruys Familia and Dellin Betances. Diaz lost the closer's role last season and has blown one of two save chances to open this season.
