ATLANTA – The return of Dellin Betances from a right-shoulder collision officially ended Wednesday, with the Mets announcing they will bring right-hand treatment to the end of the season.
Manager Luis Roxas did not have a definitive diagnosis, but said Bethans would have surgery on his shoulder. The 33-year-old athlete completed his recovery at St Lucie Stadium and was ready to move to Triple-A Syracuse. He played in just one regular season game for the Mets this year until he was included in the injury list on April 8.
This is the latest physical setback for Betans, who spent most of the last month of last year’s 60th season with right-handed power in the IL. Last year, the Betans appeared in a single game for the Yankees as Achilles suffered a lat injury before tearing.
The Mets, who need bullet aid after the 2019 season, have signed a one-year, $ 10.5 million contract that includes a player option for this season.
Selected to a four-star team with the Yankees, who started in 2014, Betans, unable to withstand a slowdown in the Mets last season, dropped to 7.71 ERA in 15 games for the Mets. 91 miles away. This year’s spring training session was reported to still be looking for his fast ball.
“[Betances] always a good part for your eagle, ”Rojas said. “In terms of the experience in New York and pitching and all that he can have is wealth.”
Jeurys Familia, who made his debut for Syracuse on Tuesday, is expected to join the Mets again this weekend for his series against the Yankees, Rojas said.
His right arm was injured on June 21 on the right hip list.
The Mets could also return Brandon Nimmoni to the Metro series. Nimmo continues to receive bats for Syracuse to recover his time after two months in IL.
JD Davis ’first rehabilitation game with Syracuse was postponed on Wednesday due to bad weather.
According to Rojas, Dominic Smith was not in the starting lineup to keep him in the new squad for the Mets ’upcoming games.
