Mets | Jeremy Hefner to be examined

New York Mets SP Jeremy Hefner (elbow) will see a doctor Tuesday, Aug. 20, to determine if he'll need Tommy John surgery on his elbow. Hefner is dealing with a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Hefner doesn't need Tommy John, it'll be tough for him to return and pitch again this season. Don't hold out hope that he will contribute in the last month of the season.
