New York Mets left-hander Scott Rice will have season-ending elbow surgery Wednesday in New York, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

Rice is in his second season in the majors. The relief pitcher has made 32 appearances already this season, and has a 5.93 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings pitched.

According to Carig, Rice's surgery will be to have a bone spur removed, and to relocate a nerve. A normal rehab after having a bone spur removed is 6-8 weeks, but because of the nerve issue, the rehab will take 4 months.
