Carrasco has elbow surgery to remove bone fragment
Carrasco will resume baseball activities later this winter.
The 34-year-old struggled during an injury-shortened first season with the Mets following a blockbuster trade from the Cleveland Indians alongside Francisco Lindor. The veteran hurler posted a 6.04 ERA over 53 2/3 innings (12 starts) with New York.
Carrasco owns a career 3.86 ERA with 1,355 strikeouts in 1,296 innings across 12 years between the Mets and Indians.
