Costa: Pagan to Have Surgery, Will Miss 6 to 8 Weeks

Brian Costa of The Star-Ledger lets us know that reserve outfield contestant Angel Pagan will have his surgery:

Mets outfielder Angel Pagan will have arthoscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow tomorrow.

Pagan was vying for a spot on the team’s 25-roster this spring, but will now be out 6 to 8 weeks while he recovers.

You have to feel at least a little sorry for Pagan, who got hot early last season and got injured just as he was cooling off. As things were, I’m not sure what his chances of making the team really were, given the crowded nature of the Mets’ outfield and Jeremy Reed’s presence in camp.

Still, he does add depth to the team in Triple-A or on the big league roster, so here’s hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Anytime anyone who could push Marlon Anderson out of town goes down, its a bad thing.
