Jeremy Hefner (elbow) made 20 throws from 60 feet on Monday in Mets camp and reported feeling fine.

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) announced Sunday that he's been cleared to begin his throwing program.

Mets re-signed RHP Jeremy Hefner to a minor league contract.

Hefner was non-tendered last week, but the Mets will bring him back aboard for 2014 and help him along in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The right-hander might not pitch all next year.

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.

It's a procedural move in order to clear room on the 40-man roster. Hefner will be out until at least late next season following Tommy John surgery.

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.

Jeremy Hefner will soon undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.

The decision was made after Hefner received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews. The right-hander will have a partially torn medial collateral ligament repaired during the procedure and can't be counted on for any real production until 2015.

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) will see Dr. James Andrews next Monday for a second opinion.

Tommy John surgery was recommended after Hefner met with doctors in New York this week, but he'll meet with Andrews before making a decision. If he goes ahead with the surgery, he will miss most if not all of the 2014 season.

Jeremy Hefner has been recommended Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

It's a tough blow for the Mets and for the 27-year-old right-hander, who will likely miss all of the 2014 season if he indeed goes under the knife. Hefner was placed on the disabled list August 14 with a torn MCL.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 04:13:00 PM

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) is scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday.

Hefner is dealing with a partially torn medial collateral ligament and the Mets haven't ruled out the possibility of Tommy John surgery. He's going for a second opinion before making a decision.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 08:47:00 AM

Jeremy Hefner (elbow) will see another specialist on Monday for a second opinion on his injured elbow.

Hefner has been diagnosed with a partially torn medial collateral ligament and may need Tommy John surgery. If that is the case, he is likely to miss most of, if not the entirety, of the 2014 season.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 09:23:00 PM

Mets placed RHP Jeremy Hefner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 10, with a partially torn medial collateral ligament.

Hefner had been optioned on Sunday, but he's now been redirected to the DL. The injury is considered a chronic condition that will not require surgery at this time and the club is hoping to get him back late this season. He's posted a 4.34 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 130 2/3 innings for the Metropolitans.
Wed, Aug 14, 2013 06:56:00 PM

Mets optioned RHP Jeremy Hefner to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Hefner is dealing with an elbow injury that he's nursed all season, so he'll actually probably wind up being placed on the disabled list. Either way, he's no longer in the rotation, as the Mets will go back to a traditional five-man setup for now.
