Gary Sheffield, the Mets biggest power bat right now, hasn’t played in the last two games. Now, he is said to have received a cortisone shot in his right knee to help with the pain he’s been feeling.
Remember, this is the knee that the Mets said didn’t warrant an MRI last week.
It’s only a matter of time before Sheffield lands on the DL. His 40-year-old body just can’t stand up to everyday play in the field and that’s what he’s been unfortunately forced into.
How long will he last? If I had to put money on it, I’d say not long. Not long at all.
