We’ll start off with some news in regards to tickets:
- Those who purchased Cyclones mini plans should have gotten them, or will get them this week.
- Individual tickets, as well as special packages, will be mailed out as well. However, if you selected BALLPARK PICKUP, you have to pick them up yourself.
The Tommy John Surgery preformed on infielder-turned-pitcher Pedro Perez last week was successful. The surgery was preformed by Dr. David Altchek at Hospital for Special Surgery.
Pedro flew back to the Mets Minor League Camp in Port St. Lucie and is recovering. Pedro will miss the 2016 season and a good chunk of the 2017 season.
Pitcher Matthew Blackham, who was a Starter for the Cyclones last season, recently had surgery on his arm.
Blackham will be evaluated by Mets doctors in the coming week and will await the results of the evaluation.
Should Blackham be medically cleared, he will most likely return to Brooklyn.
