Jerry Blevins, who has been out since mid-April due to a fractured left forearm, will be reexamined next week to see if the bone has healed, Terry Collins told reporters on Thursday.
Blevins suffered the injury when he was hit by a line drive, and the recovery has taken longer than expected since the bone has thus far not healed fully.
If Blevins is cleared next week, he’ll be able to immediately resume throwing.
Prior to getting injured, Blevins didn’t allow a run in seven appearances (five innings) for the Mets this season.
When Blevins returns, it should spell the end of Alex Torres as a Met — if Torres is still here by then.
