His season might be over, but New York Mets star closer Edwin Díaz was still in great spirits in his hospital room on Thursday … updating his fans and thanking them for their support after undergoing surgery on his right knee.
Díaz’s wife, Nashaly, shared a snapshot of the pitcher on Instagram … showing him throwing up a peace sign as he lay in bed with blankets draped over his legs.
Díaz — who suffered a right knee patellar injury while celebrating Puerto Rico’s win over the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic on Wednesday — also sent a message to his supporters … saying everything is going to be okay.
“To all my beloved fans, especially the Mets fans, I want to let you know that I am doing well and healing,” the All-Star said. “I feel blessed and grateful for your support with messages and prayers, thank you very much!”
Díaz — whose game entrance has gone viral for being the most hype moment you can experience at a baseball game — assured Mets fans they’ll hear “Narco” by Timmy Trumpet and Blasterjaxx soon enough.
