Jeremy Hefner is likely to require a second procedure on his right elbow.

Hefner has not made a smooth recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and visited Sunday with Dr. James Andrews. "New CT scan and X-rays showed no healing," Hefner wrote on Facebook after the exam. "Will continue to rest for a few more weeks. Surgery is likely, but not definite. Clarity will come soon."

Jeremy Hefner has reinjured the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

He also has a stress fracture in his arm. It's awful news for Hefner, who underwent Tommy John surgery last August and recently begun a minor league rehab assignment. It's now possible that he could need another Tommy John surgery, which would keep him out of action for another year. He'll go for a second opinion before deciding on the next step, but it doesn't sound like he'll be pitching again anytime soon.

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) will throw breaking balls off a mound on Sunday.

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) is hoping to begin throwing from the slope of the mound in 2-3 weeks.

Hefner will expand his flat-ground throwing to 120 feet later this week. He's hoping to make his return from Tommy John surgery late this season. "That's my goal," Hefner said. "That's my hope. Hopefully I can come and contribute if there's a need. I think I'd be wasting my time if I wasn't trying to get back to the big leagues."

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) has advanced his flat-ground throwing to 75 feet.

Mets non-tendered RHP Jeremy Hefner.

Another surprise, as Hefner wasn't even arbitration-eligible this winter, but the Mets apparently aren't willing to pay him $500,000 in 2014 as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. Tough break for the 26-year-old right-hander.

Mets activated RHP Jeremy Hefner from the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move. Hefner had Tommy John elbow surgery in August 2013 and could miss all of 2014.

Mets transferred RHP Jeremy Hefner from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) wrote on his Twitter account that he will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday morning.

This confirms reports from Monday. Hefner will have a partially torn medial collateral ligament repaired and is unlikely to be a factor for the Mets until late in the 2014 season at the earliest.
