Mets Injury Update: Vic Black struggling with herniated disk

By on 9/14/2014 11:00:00 AM

The New York Mets dropped to 72-77 on the season following a 10-3 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday. Although 22nd in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Mets are a respectable 13th in ERA at 3.56. But there is some concern over the health of reliever Vic Black, who continues to struggle with a herniated disk.

I reported on September 9 that Black, who was out since August 23 with a herniated disk in his neck, which required an epidural injection, was activated from the disabled list.

Adam Rubin, who covers the Mets for, tweeted the following on Black.
Black, in his second Major League season, is 2-3 with a 2.60 ERA. He's allowed 26 hits and walked 19 in 34 2/3 innings, while striking out 32. In 59 career games, Black is 5-3 with 16 holds and a 2.96 ERA.
