Jerry Blevins reinjures left arm

The New York Mets today announced that lefthanded pitcher Jerry Blevins will likely undergo surgery in Boston next week on the distal radius bone in his left arm. The bone was originally fractured by a line drive during a game at Citi Field on April 19. Blevins had recently resumed throwing, but on Monday evening, August 3, he slipped while stepping off a curb and re-fractured the same bone. It is unlikely that Blevins will return to play with the Mets this season.

In seven games with the Mets earlier this season, Blevins was 1-0 and had not allowed a run in 5.0 innings pitched.
