Wasn't there something about how good he was for the team earlier this season?
“I didn’t mean it to be a pity party, like no one’s wearing my jersey,” Jankowski, the Mets’ speedy outfielder, said Saturday before starting in left field. “It was more like, I understand my role and I’m happy to be in this role. But it speaks volumes to the clubhouse. I’ve never been a part of a group of guys like this in the clubhouse where they genuinely care about each person and know that each role is important to the team. It’s awesome.”
I guess his role and to the team isn't so important any more!
