Mets Top Prospect Undergoes Second Elbow Surgery; Has Not Pitched Since 2019

You hate to see it.

New York Mets pitching prospect Matt Allan underwent right elbow UCL revision surgery last month.

Allan was considered a top-100 prospect entering the 2021 season, but has not been able to pitch since 2019 due to ongoing issues, including Tommy John surgery.

He also missed all of last season while he recovered from ulnar transposition surgery to repair a nerve issue.

After undergoing what is essentially his second-career Tommy John surgery, it's unclear when he'll be ready to resume pitching again.

In 2019, the twenty-one-year-old posted a 2.61 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts over 10.1 innings and five starts.

Allan is the Mets' 10th-ranked prospect.
