LOS ANGELES (AP) – New York Mets right-hander John Maine has had arthroscopic surgery Friday to clean out scar tissue from his shoulder and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
A Mets spokesman said Saturday the procedure was performed by Dr. Michael Citotti in Philadelphia. Maine has been sidelined since May 21 because of weakness in his shoulder and had a setback while making a rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo about a month ago. He is 1-3 with a 6.13 ERA in nine starts this season for New York.
Maine was diagnosed with tendinitis in his right rotator cuff on May 24, four days after throwing only five pitches in a start at Washington and getting into a dugout spat with manager Jerry Manuel after being pulled for his own protection.
