This news comes as no surprise because it is literally classic Mets. Adam Rubin of ESPN has reported that the young ace is in need of elbow surgery and will not throw again for the rest of the year. While at first being diagnosed as only some forearm tightness has transitioned into an actual problem. At the most crucial part of their season, while chasing the playoffs they are now without another one of their biggest assets. On the bright side, the recovery time for surgery is only a mere three months which is no time compared to Tommy John, which means he should be ready to start pitching come spring training. The Mets rotation has been taking L's all season, with Harvey, Matz and Wheeler all either on the disabled list or out for the year. It is hard to believe that (besides Thor) the old man of the gang Bartolo Colon is one of the most healthy pitchers on the roster. They do still have a two game lead of the second wild card spot, but with a roster in shambles and your hottest player being Jose Reyes it is very possible they will be able to give it up. Everyone knows that the Mets have horrible luck, and this news has been the icing on the cake for a truly disappointing season after such a great run last year.
