PELFREY TO THE METS’ DISABLED LIST
Wed, 02 May 2012 11:31 PM EDT

N.Y Mets right-hander Mike Pelfrey is “99 %” certain that he will face season-ending Tommy John surgery, he announced.

An MRI exposed that Pelfrey had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Football odds

“It’s frustrating,” Pelfrey claimed. “I’ve never been hurt.”

Pelfrey will visit with Dr. James Andrews, according to manager Terry Collins.

“The diagnosis wasn’t very good,” Collins expounded. Football spreads

“[The doctors] came back and said that I have a tear in my UCL and they brought up my choices,” recounted Pelfrey, who was placed on the DL with what was thought to be right elbow inflammation.

“They brought up the PRP, which is an injection. They put it at like 10-20% that it works, and so there had been an 80% probability I was still going to have surgery. So I believed it was the best case for me that we just go on and do it. Glaringly, I’m still intended to go down and visit Andrews personally and we’ll go from there, but I suspect surgery is about 99 percent [that] it’s going to happen.”

Pelfrey 1st began to experience “tightness” and “grabbing” on the 1st pitch of each inning in his last start — an 8-inning, 1-run outing against the San Francisco Giants.

Initially, Pelfrey thought that it was just standard tendinitis as he did not feel any discomfort.

But after getting a precautionary MRI and a 2nd view, it turned out to be much worse.

“I told them I can pitch, because I feel good,” Pelfrey said. “But the thing that kind of backed me off was it was brought up to me that I could pitch and alter my mechanics and finish up injuring my shoulder. And my shoulder feels good. And I suspect that’s the last thing that I want.”

This may mark the end of Pelfrey’s career with the New York Mets. He’s arbitration-eligible one more time but is making $5.6875 million this year, making him a definite non-tender candidate in December.

Pelfrey is the 2nd-longest tenured Met behind 3rd baseman David Wright. Pelfrey debuted in July 8, 2006.

Right-hander Chris Schwinden took Pelfrey’s rotation position last Fri. night versus the Colorado Rockies in Denver. Left-hander Robert Carson was optioned to Double-A Binghamton.

Long term, the N.Y Mets could turn to highly touted Triple-A prospect Matt Harvey to possibly replace Pelfrey in the rotation. The flame-throwing 23-year-old is 2-1 with a 4.85 ERA in 5 starts for Buffalo.

The 28-year-old Pelfrey had pitched to a 2.29 ERA in his 1st 3 starts in 2012.

“I just feel terrible for you, especially now with what you had to endure last summer, coming off a big year the year before, and at this time pitching as good as I have seen you pitch in person,” Collins told Pelfrey.

“He has his sinker back; he has command of his curveball. Everything was working. And to have this occur is a true shame, not just for him but for us.”

Pelfrey owns a 50-54 record and a 4.36 ERA in 149 career starts, all for the N.Y Mets.
