The Mets announced that Zach Lutz will have surgery on the hamate bone in his left hand on Monday. It's the same hand he had surgery on in the middle of the season.
I feel really terrible for Zach. For one thing, he was on fire the entire time he was healthy with the Bisons. Terry Collins had also just said he wanted to find a way to get him some playing time with the Mets. The Bisons broadcasters constantly went on about how this surgery is unfortunate because it only takes about twenty minutes but it sidelines players for months. I guess the good news is that Lutz has the entire offseason to recover and he knows he can come back from this surgery and play well.
Hopefully Zach Lutz will bounce back from this and compete for a bench spot in Spring Training.
Let's Go Mets!
. . . If things get really weird this winter Zach could find himself as the Mets third baseman . . .
. . . Well, as much as I love Zach, if David Wright is gone the Mets have big issues . . .
