After showing up to Summer Camp wearing the same enormous brace he had on his knee in Spring Training, Jed Lowrie wound up on the IL and has yet to play a game in 2020.
Earlier this season, GM Brodie Van Wagenen said Lowrie was dealing with "PCL laxity," with part of the treatment for it being injections.
Asked Wednesday what Lowrie had been doing recently and whether his return in 2020 was possible, manager Luis Rojas did not have much of an update on Lowrie's progression.
"I know that he's (been getting) that shot, the injection in the knee," Rojas said. "And I know that those were gonna be different injections -- it was gonna go progressively. But the timeline of it, I'm not very much aware. I know there was gonna be different injections to the knee that were gonna help him heal."
As far as whether Lowrie was taking part in any baseball activity?
"I don't know what he's doing," Rojas said.
Lowrie, who has played in nine of a possible 205 games as a Met due to various lower body injuries, is a free agent after the season.
POSITIVE UPDATES ON BETANCES AND MATZ
Dellin Betances and Steven Matz, who are both on the 10-day IL, are working their way back.
"We're counting on (them being back this season)," Rojas said. "They're in the progression. Betances threw a side (session) the other day. Looked good, felt good. Matz threw in our alternate site yesterday, also felt good and looked good. ... The timeline for them to come back is still uncertain, but it should be soon."
The Mets have 17 games remaining in the regular season, and could benefit in a big way from the return of both pitchers if the team is in the playoff race when they make it back.
