These are the Mets, after all. This team is happiest when even the most minute and inconsequential details are kept in private. As a recent example, just look at their organizational policy on how to handle news of players that test positive for COVID-19. Even if the player gives the team permission to announce he has tested positive, the Mets said they would not discuss a player’s whereabouts if he was not present at the stadium. Once Jared Hughes and Brad Brach, the only two known Mets players who have so far tested positive, returned from the injured list, they both announced their tests results.
