Mets LHP Jerry Blevins re-breaks arm, needs surgery

NEW YORK (AP) New York Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins re-broke his arm after slipping off a curb and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

The Mets made the announcement on Thursday, saying he'll have surgery in Boston next week on the radius bone that was fractured by a line drive during a game April 19 at Citi Field.

The team says the left-handed Blevins had resumed throwing, but fell on Monday.

In seven games with the Mets this season, he was 1-0 and hadn't allowed a run in 5.0 innings pitched.
