Shaun Marcum‘s time with the Mets is likely over.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the right-hander has been shut down for the remainder of the 2013 season because of lingering pain and numbness that extends from his upper back and neck down to the finger tips on his pitching hand.
Marcum, who signed a one-year, $4 million free agent contract in January, registered a 5.29 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 60/21 K/BB ratio in 78 1/3 innings with the Mets. He will turn 32 years old in December.
