John Maine has season-ending shoulder surgery

Jul 24, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, John Maine underwent season-ending arthroscopic
surgery Friday
to clean out scar tissue in his right shoulder.

Maine was 1-3 with a 6.13 ERA over his first nine starts this season before going on the disabled list with right arm fatigue on May 21. The Mets brought the 29-year-old right-hander back for $3.3 million this season, but he’s now an obvious non-tender candidate. Maine is 39-32 with a 4.17 ERA over five seasons in New York.

So, is Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen now fully-redeemed for calling John Maine a “perpetual liar” about his health?
