Injury Updates: Wright, Hefner, Mejia, Parnell


Injury Updates:

  • Third baseman David Wright (hamstring) expects to return this season, but hasn't begun baseball activities just yet. He's not sure when he'd return.
  • Tommy John Surgery was recommended for starter Jeremy Hefner, who has a partial tear of the MCL in his right elbow. Hefner is considering getting another opinion, according to Mets manager Terry Collins, but surgery likely would be soon.
  • Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will have season-ending surgery likely within the next seven to 10 days to remove the bone spur in his right elbow, and get the elbow cleaned out. The surgery had always been planned, but Mejia felt discomfort during his Saturday start.
  • Bobby Parnell's (herniated disc in neck) symptoms have lessened but not to the point where he can begin baseball activities.
