Carlos Carrasco undergoes surgery to remove a bone fragment from his elbow

Mets pitcher Carlos Carrasco underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment from the elbow of his pitching arm, and is expected to return to activity in the winter.

Mets medical director David Altchek operated on the Venezuelan pitcher Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Carrasco, 34, came to the Mets from Cleveland in January in the trade for shortstop Francisco Lindor. He tore his right hamstring during spring training and it wasn’t until July 30 that he was able to make his debut last season.

The right-hander went 1-5 with a 6.04 ERA in 12 starts.

Next season, Carrasco will receive a salary of $ 12 million and has the option to renew his contract until 2023 for $ 14 million with a termination clause of $ 3 million. The renewal option could be guaranteed if he launches 170 tickets next season and is healthy for the start of the 2023 campaign.
