SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - New York Mets pitcher Shaun Marcum will have season-ending surgery on his right hand.
Marcum experienced tingling and numbness in his hand during a 7-6 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday night, when he allowed 11 hits and five runs in five innings. He had experienced similar symptoms in his previous start and during spring training, and had an MRI last week. Marcum also met with a hand specialist in St. Louis this week.
Marcum is 1-10 with a 5.29 ERA in 14 games (12 starts). He signed a $4 million, one-year contract with New York last winter that included a chance to make another $4 million in bonuses.
Carlos Torres will replace Marcum in the rotation, and right-hander Gonzalez Germen was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas. Germen was 3-3 with a 5.52 ERA for Las Vegas.
