Dellin Betances will not see the field again in 2021, as Mets manager Luis Rojas announced on Wednesday afternoon that the veteran right-hander will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

The 33-year-old pitched just one game for the Mets this season, allowing one earned run with a walk and a strikeouts against the Phillies on April 7.

"He complained of some shoulder pain and he’s getting surgery, so he’s going to miss the remainder of the season," Rojas said. "He’s getting surgery, I think it’s (Thursday), so he won’t be pitching for us for the remainder of the season, that’s what I was told by our medical staff."

Signed by the Mets prior to last season, Betances’ tenure in Queens has been riddled with injuries, as he’s appeared in just 16 games total while pitching to a 7.82 ERA, often struggling with his command.
