Kelvim Escobar to have season-ending surgery

May 4, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

Kelvim Escobar headshot.jpgNot terribly surprising given that he hasn’t stepped on the mound since winter ball, but at least now it’s official: Escobar will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a torn capsule in front of his
right shoulder and will miss the rest of the season. Escobar has only pitched in one game since 2007, and earlier this spring waxed philosophical about retirement and stuff, so you have to figure that we’ve seen the last of him in a major league uniform.

For the Mets this was a $1.25 million gamble that went bust. But only financially, as they’ve gotten good performance from Fernando Nieve and Pedro Feliciano, the men pitching the innings Escobar was originally intended to pitch.

    Another great move by Omar . I think he should be fired along with the little gestapo Theo Epstein . Two guys that have worn out their welcome.

    Pretty much everything Kelvim does these days is season-ending.

    What does Epstein have to do with this? I’m sure the Mets would have loved to of had Epstein at their helm all this time.

    Literally the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. Epstein has worn out his welcome? Uh, okay.

    I’ll just give you one big loser he paid close to 100 million for : does dice-k ring a bell . I only wish a moron like you had to account for that money .
