The New York Mets have received some terrible news regarding their newly acquired starting pitcher, Jason Vargas, who apparently will miss the start of the season due to a serious injury in his non-throwing hand.

 

According to several reports, Vargas suffered a non-displaced hamate bone on his right hand, this after taking a line drive in a minor league game this past Friday, and will see a specialist this Sunday afternoon.

 

However, it is unknown whether or not the pitcher will start the season on the disabled list, as the Mets still don't know how bad the injury is.

According to Tim Britton of the Athletic, New York's general manager Sandy Alderson told the reporter that Vargas will "Either pitch through it or he’ll have it surgically repaired".

 

 had a great final season at the Kauffman Stadium, where he had an 18-11 record (being the AL Wins Leader), with a 4.16 ERA with 134 K's, numbers that saw him being named to his first All-Star game. Also, he won the World Series with the Royals in 2015.
