Mets RHP prospect Jordan Humphreys underwent Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, the team announced.
The 21-year-old Humphreyes, who was the Mets' No. 15 prospect according to MLB.com, had a 1.79 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with 83 strikeouts in 80 2/3 innings (13 starts) this season between Low-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie.
"Though physically mature, Humphreys does a good job of repeating his delivery, enabling him to be around the zone consistently with all four pitches," MLB.com wrote in their recent scouting report. "He doesn't require much projection, but the ingredients are there for the right-hander to develop into a back-of-the-rotation piece."
The Mets selected Humphreys in the 18th round of the 2015 MLB Draft.
Mets LHP prospect Thomas Szapucki, who is their No. 6 prospect according to MLB.com, underwent Tommy John surgery last month.
Ordinary recovery time for Tommy John surgery is between 12 and 18 months.
