Edwin, Mickey, Brodie talk role 00:01:19
New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz, manager Mickey Callaway and GM Brodie Van Wagenen discuss why Diaz wasn't used in high leverage situation.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway defended his decision not to use Edwin Diaz in a pivotal eighth-inning spot after Monday's 11-inning win over the Phillies, saying he wouldn't use his closer for a four-out save unless it was the playoffs.

Callaway said the Mets wouldn't have Diaz, who has a 1.35 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings this season, pitch more than one inning or enter in a tie game on the road.

After Jeurys Familia pitched into a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the bottom of the eighth in a 6-5 game, Callaway turned to Robert Gsellman instead of Diaz to try to escape the jam. Gsellman then walked in the game-tying run on four pitches to blow the save.

The Yankees were actively pursuing free agent starting pitching target Patrick Corbin, but he found a new home in the National League instead. 

Corbin reportedly agreed to a six-year deal, $140 million with the Nationals on Tuesday barring a physical, SNY's Andy Martino confirmed.

Martino noted the Yankees were not willing to go six years in their potential deal for Corbin, which is why they missed out when Washington delivered on that front. However, since the Yankees dealt for James Paxton earlier this offseason, they didn't necessarily view Corbin as an urgent priority.

After a visit to the Phillies on Tuesday, free agent LHP Patrick Corbin will travel to the Bronx to meet with the Yankees on Thursday, per The Post's Joel Sherman.

The Yankees are still looking to add to their rotation after last week's trade for Mariners lefty James Paxton, and Corbin is their most likely target, according to SNY's Andy Martino.

Corbin went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with the Diamondbacks this past season, striking out a career-high 246 batters in 33 starts (200 innings).

Mets RHP Zack Wheeler improved to 9-1 in the second half by pitching seven strong innings in Monday's 9-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Wheeler (12-7) struck out four batters and allowed four runs, three hits and three walks in what could have been his final start of the season.

Manager Mickey Callaway said it's possible the team will shut Wheeler down for the rest of the season given his 182 1/3 innings he's logged this year are nearly 100 more than he threw last year and are his most in a season since 2014.

It can be argued that Mets manager Mickey Callaway didn't completely think through his eighth-inning pitching change in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

No, this wasn't like the time he made a mistake like when the Mets batted out of order in the first inning. This involved him making a situational pitching change for a pinch hitter ... before the pinch hitter was announced.

With one out in the top of the eighth inning, the Phillies had left-handed outfielder Odubel Herrera in the on-deck circle to pinch hit for pitcher Aaron Nola. Callaway had Jacob Rhame on the mound to begin the inning and opted to go to Jerry Blevins for the lefty-lefty matchup.

Mets RHP Rafael Montero is beginning to live up to the coaching staff's challenge after winning back-to-back starts for the first time.

After pitching 8 1/3 shutout innings last Wednesday against the Reds, Montero continued where he left off in Monday's 11-7 win over the Phillies, only allowing one run through five innings before running into trouble in the sixth.

"When I came in I was little bit off, but I tried to bounce back," Montero said, according to the Associated Press, after giving up four runs, five hits and five walks in 5 1/3 innings. "I fell behind the (count) against the batters and that's where I started to give up the walks."

Tempers flared in the eighth inning of the Mets' 4-3 win over the Phillies on Monday when Phillies pitcher Edubray Ramos threw toward Asdrubal Cabrera's head.

Ramos threw a 96 mph fastball over Cabrera's head in a 2-2 game, and Cabrera stared Ramos down after the pitch. Home plate umpire Allan Porter warned both benches and later ejected Phillies manager Pete Mackanin.

Ramos said the pitch slipped, though others speculated it was retaliation after Cabrera flipped his bat emphatically after hitting an 11th-inning walk-off home run off Ramos in a game last September.
