He has frayed ligaments in his forearm (Ulnar) and potential further damage to his repaired and still injured, elbow.
While he won't require surgery, he will need time to heal.
As excited as we all were in the off-season when we acquired Putz, his year, much like the Mets of 2009, has been one for the crapper.
I only hope Putz can come back healthy in 2010 to be the pitcher he once was.
With Billy Wagner gone, it's like the call for the old sage in Star Wars...
"Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope."
Get healthy JJ...in fact, get healthy ALL of you....we need to kick ass in 2010 to make all of this 2009 bullshit worth it.
