Terry Collins just announced in his post-game interview that Mike Pelfrey is going to have Tommy John surgery. This is terrible news. Mike Pelfrey has pitched very well this season. Unfortunately, Big Pelf will be out for the season. It’s not obscene to think that Big Pelf has thrown his last pitch as a New York Met.
Pelfrey will visit Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham tomorrow. Also:
Pelfrey says likelihood of tommy John is “99 percent.”

Good luck Pelfrey! Hope to see you back on the field as a Met ASAP. I’ll write more about the significance of this situation later.
