Francisco Rodriguez Out For Season; Had Surgery Tuesday

New York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez underwent surgery on his right thumb his agent Paul Kinzer confirmed Tuesday evening.

Rodriguez, of course, injured the thumb during an “alleged” post-game run-in with his father-in-law last week in which he’s facing third degree assault charges.

Rodriguez will not return to the Mets this season, and if reports are correct, may never return.
