Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia underwent surgery, as scheduled, on Wednesday afternoon to remove a bone spur from his throwing elbow. The procedure went as planned and Mejia is fully expected to be ready for the start of spring training next February.
Mejia registered a promising 2.30 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 27/4 K/BB ratio across 27 1/3 innings this season for the Mets. He seems likely to have a starting rotation spot on Opening Day next April.
