Prior to this afternoon’s game against the Brewers, the Mets placed J.D. Davis on the injured list with a left hand sprain, effectively ending his 2021 season. To take his place on the roster, the club activated Sean Reid-Foley from the 60-day IL. They designated Albert Almora as a corresponding move to Reid-Foley’s return.
Davis has been plagued by injuries related to his left hand all season long, which has never allowed him to get into a real rhythm. He missed all but one game in May and June due to a left hand sprain, and return right after the All Star break He finishes his year hitting .285/.384/.436 with five homers, a 130 wRC+, and a 1.5 fWAR in 73 games. He lost playing time later in the year due to Jonathan Villar’s play, and rarely cracked the lineup in the last month of the season.
Reid-Foley has not played for the Mets since June 30 due to right elbow inflammation. He landed on the 60-day IL back in July as a result. Prior to going down, the right-handed reliever posted a 5.23 ERA, a 3.84 FIP, and a 1.50 WHIP, resulting in a -0.3 bwAR in 20.2 innings.
