San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - New York Mets starting pitcher Shaun
Marcum's season is over, after the struggling right-hander was diagnosed
with thoracic outlet syndrome.
Newsday was first with the news on Tuesday, adding that Marcum is expected to
undergo season-ending surgery next Monday.
Marcum's 2013 season did not begin until late April, when he was activated
from the 15-day disabled list after being sidelined with a neck injury.
Things did not go well from there, as he pitched to a 1-10 record and 5.29
earned run average in 14 games (12 starts).
The 31-year-old signed with the Mets in January after spending the previous
two years with the Milwaukee Brewers, going 20-11 with a 3.60 ERA in 54
