New York Mets

New York Mets reliever Jerry Blevins re-injures arm after slipping and falling of off a curb. He is expected to miss the rest of the season.

According to a report by Mike Puma of the New York Post, left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins will miss the remainder of the season after slipping and falling from a curb.

While the news is not devastating to the New York Mets, Blevins was going to a be a welcome sight and an important part of the bullpen during the stretch run.  Blevins, out since April, initially fractured his arm after taking a line drive off of his forearm in a game against the Marlins back in April.

At this point more responsibility will fall on the newly acquired Eric O’Flaherty.  In addition, General Manager Sandy Alderson may be forced to work the phones in an effort to acquire another left-handed reliever during the waiver trade period.

Second on the list would be the always loveable NY Mets. If he could spend all summer sitting by a pool, girly drink in hand, music playing and the Mets on TV, he would be a very happy man.
