Mets Pitcher Ready For Team Debut After Missing 2022 Due To Tommy John Surgery

He missed the entire 2022 season.

New York Mets pitcher John Curtiss plans to be ready for the start of spring training.

Curtiss underwent Tommy John surgery in September of 2021 and missed the entire 2022 season while recovering. However, he's now healthy and looking to compete for a spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen with a good spring.

Over his five-year career, the twenty-nine-year-old holds a 3.63 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 87 strikeouts over 86.2 innings of work. 

Curtiss does have a minor-league option, though, which could cost him a spot on the active roster if it comes down to him and another pitcher who doesn't have an option. 

He is a former sixth-round pick by the Minnesota Twins in the 2014 MLB Draft.
