Yesterday the Mets cleared room for Carlos Beltran on the 40-man roster by transferring Fernando Tatis to the 60-day disabled list after the 35-year-old bench player underwent shoulder surgery earlier this week.
Tatis will miss the remainder of the season and Anthony DiComo of MLB.com speculates that his career may be over. He originally injured his shoulder in September of 2008, but played through the pain while hitting .282/.339/.438 in 379 plate appearances for the Mets last season.
Tatis batted just .185 in a limited role this year before being placed on the DL last month and opted to go under the knife Wednesday. Signed to a one-year, $850,000 contract, Tatis will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal this offseason if he chooses to continue playing.
