Mets Injury Update: Dana Eveland out for season

By on 9/16/2014 06:00:00 AM

The New York Mets entered Monday's game against the Miami Marlins with a record of 72-78, fourth in the National League East. The Mets have struggled offensively all season, ranked 25th in the Major Leagues in runs scored. The bright spot has been the pitching, which is 12th in ERA at 3.55. There is some bad news on the injury front, as Dana Eveland has been declared out for the rest of the season.

As reported by Tim Healey of, Eveland's season is over after the reliever battled elbow inflammation of late and made only one appearance over the past month.  Eveland was set to head home to begin a rehabilitation program. Eveland understood the decision by the Mets to cut his season short with two weeks to play.
"Terry [Collins] brought me in yesterday and said there's really no reason for me to try to push it and try to get back. So he said as opposed to taking me on the road trip and taking up space, send me home and let me start my rehab at home. [The elbow is] feeling better every day. I hate to leave here, because I do feel like, you know, maybe in another week or so I'd probably be able to pitch again."
Eveland, in his ninth Major League season, is 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA in 30 games this season. He's allowed 24 hits and walked six in 27 1/3 innings, while striking out 27.  Eveland has pitched for the Brewers, Diamondbacks, A's, Blue Jays, Pirates, Dodgers, Orioles and Mets. He has a career record of 20-26 with a 5.27 ERA.
