Dellin Betances is set to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, according to Mets manager Luis Rojas.
Betances recently began a rehab assignment where he tossed a scoreless inning with Triple-A Syracuse. It isn't exactly clear what happened to him after that appearance that resulted in needing this surgery, but it is clear he suffered some sort of major setback.
Mets RHP Dellin Betances (shoulder) threw one inning in a minor league rehab appearance for Low-A St. Lucie on Sunday.
Betances struck out two and walked one in a scoreless inning. The Mets will continue giving him chances to prove he belongs in a big league bullpen. They're reportedly pleased with how Betances has been able to strengthen his shoulder as of late.
Mets manager Luis Rojas noted that reliever Dellin Betances threw side sessions, but they don't have plans for rehab assignments as they're to be determined.
With only 13.1 innings from 2019-2021, Betances has battled injuries. The main priority is his health, and unfortunately, he isn't fantasy relevant after some workhorse reliever-type roles from 2014-2018.
The Mets transferred reliever Dellin Betances to the 60-day injured list.
Since 2018, Dellin Betances has only thrown 13.1 innings pitched. After five seasons (2014-2018) with the Yankees where he recorded a 2.22 ERA in 373.1 IP, Betances isn't fantasy relevant at this time. It looks more like a slim chance in 2021 or more likely 2022.
As the Mets travel to Colorado and Chicago, the team will be without Dellin Betances.
Betances, who was placed on the injured list due to shoulder impingement, will not be activated when eligible Sunday. The right-hander has yet to resume throwing and remains without a timetable. Betances allowed one run in the sole inning pitched in this year.
