"The uncertainty as to when Senga might return makes it hard to predict exactly what the cost to the Mets will be. Senga is projected as a three-win contributor by Steamer and ZiPS, a little less than that by PECOTA. If he is healthy in three weeks and on the CitiField mound in May, he’ll retain most of those projections. The specific injury, though, makes it hard to be optimistic. Kyle Wright suffered a capsule injury and went from winning 21 games to pretty much losing two years of his career. Brandon Woodruff will miss all of 2024 following anterior capsule surgery."
