Daniel Herrera will undergo Tommy John Surgery and miss the remainder of the season, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Herrera, 27, made 16 relief appearances last season and had a 1.13 ERA after joining the Mets as a player to be named in the Francisco Rodriguez trade with the Milwaukee Brewers. He was removed from the 40-man roster during the offseason and remained with the organization. Herrera had tossed six innings with Triple-A Buffalo this season before the left elbow difficulty sidelined him.
That’s too bad, he was very effective for the Mets last season and it was nice to know we had him in reserve in case we needed him.
