The knee capsule is the structure that surrounds the knee and consists of ligaments such as the dreaded ACL, MCL and LCL that hold the assembly in place, fluid sacks and bones.
On Friday, Mets declined to make Lowrie available to the media, but Mets skipper Mickey Callaway commented on the situation and said, "It's not serious at this time" and adds "it's something we need Pay attention to and progress in the right way ", as Mike Puma of New York Post .
Callaway seemed comfortable (according to Ass Presset ) with the team's depth behind Lowrie, referring to General Manager Brodie Van Wagen's attempt to shore Mets & # 39; infield roster this offseason in addition as Robinson Cano Lowrie and JD Davis as well as the arrival of highly acclaimed first base prospect Pete Alonso .
"Therefore, we brought ourselves deep. If something unfortunate happens, we are covered," he said. "The guys we have in their 30's have played many games in their 30's."
