D’Arnaud Gets Surgery, Swarzak Continues Rehab

The Mets released a few notable Mets medical updates today.

The list was highlighted by news that Travis d’Arnaud had successful Tommy John Surgery yesterday and will remain in New York for rest and recovery.

Anthony Dicomo of MLB.com hears that d’Arnaud is unsure whether or not he will be ready for the start of Spring Training in 2019.

Meanwhile, Kevin Plawecki, who is recovering from a non-displaced hairline fracture in his left hand, will travel with the team to Atlanta, despite not being eligible to be activated until the team heads to St. Louis.

Furthermore, Anthony Swarzak (strained left oblique) is staying in New York to continue his rehab, but it was reported a couple of days ago that the right-hander is still a couple of weeks away from returning to the club.

The last name on the list was Jason Vargas, who suffered a non-displaced fracture of the hamate bone in his right hand, pitched six innings in a simulated game yesterday where he allowed no hits and, according to the team, will remain in Florida and be re-evaluated on Saturday.
