About the only good thing going for the injury-plagued New York Mets this season apparently came to an abrupt end against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Stud young outfielder Michael Conforto went down in an absolute heap after swinging and missing on the pitch. The Mets almost immediately diagnosed Conforto with a dislocated shoulder. Unfortunately, an MRI following the game showed that he also suffered a posterior capsule tear in his left shoulder.
This clearly means that Conforto is out for the remainder of the season. It could also hamper his ability to be back for the start of the 2018 campaign.
Conforto, 28, is hitting .280 on the season with 27 homers, 68 RBI and a .386 OBP on the season.
