The New York Mets finished the 2014 season with a record of 79-83, tied for second with the Atlanta Braves in the National League East. The Mets had a very solid year on the mound, ranked ninth in the Major Leagues in ERA. There is news on the injury front regarding the battery of Jenrry Mejia and Travis d'Arnaud, who both underwent surgery.

I reported on September 27 that d'Arnaud, who had been dealing with a bone spur in his elbow, would have surgery after the season is over.

An update on d'Arnaud, as reported by Anthony DiComo of, is that he underwent successful surgery on his right elbow. The recovery time is expected to be a month and d'Arnaud should be ready well before the start of the 2015 season.
