The Mets issued a two-sentence press release, which said the following:

“Minor League RHP Matt Allan underwent UCL revision surgery in January. Dr. Keith Meister performed the procedure in Arlington, TX.”

If you hope this is a minor cleanup, think again. Here’s a snippet from an article on – note the name of the surgeon:

Josh Rogers underwent UCL revision surgery on Wednesday in Arlington, Texas, a day after receiving a second opinion. Dr. Keith Meister performed the operation — essentially a second Tommy John surgery. It typically requires a 12- to 18-month recovery.”

Some guys are just unlucky in the injury department and it seems like Allan is one of those. It’s such a shame.

Thanks to John from Albany for the tip.
