Plum issues

Have my plums been got at? This otherwise healthy 2 year old tree was going to give us our first crop this year but I think they've all been nobbled. Plum 1 at the top - has an  insect pierced it, laid it's eggs inside and this is the hardened juice running out? Plum 2 - scabby - keep or ditch. Many thanks

    Plum one appears to have a line so may have had something burrowing through it. Scabby fruit are Ok to eat, just the skin is not perfect.

    Hmmm, so ditch the weeping ones?  :'(

    I’d use them for cooking
    ... cut them in half and remove the stone and cut out any dodgy looking areas.  They’ll be fine. 😋
