Mets' 2009 injury flashbacks

JOSE REYES

At first sidelined with what the Mets described as right calf tendinitis, Reyes suffered a hamstring tendon tear in early June only a day before he was set to come off the disabled list. Reyes never returned and suffered a torn hamstring muscle during rehab in September. Had surgery to clean up scar tissue in the hamstring area in October.

 

JOHN MAINE

Returning from 2008 surgery to repair a bone spur in his right shoulder, he never seemed to recover, and was diagnosed with everything from shoulder fatigue to a pinched nerve as he received multiple cortisone shots. After a three-month rehab, Maine returned in September.

 

CARLOS DELGADO

The Mets knew his torn hip labrum eventually would need surgery. His season ended May 19 after arthroscopic surgery.

 

J.J. PUTZ

Came to the Mets from Seattle with a bone spur in his right elbow. His only season in Flushing ended June 9 after surgery to remove the spur and bone fragments.

 

OLIVER PEREZ

When asked about his knee problems, he couldn't identify which knee, which cast suspicion on the Mets' diagnosis. He landed on the DL twice with patellar tendinitis of the right knee. Had surgery Sept. 1 to remove scar tissue.
