Yesterday Mets outfielder Michael Conforto dislocated shoulder as the result of a hard swing. It’s worse than just the dislocation, however: Conforto has a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder and may require surgery. He’ll go and get a second opinion, but it seems likely that the injury has ended Conforto’s season.

It was a good season until now, too. Conforto is hitting .280/.386/.558 with 27 homers and 68 driven in. He made his first ever All-Star team in July.

Tough break. Here’s hoping he’s back to full strength come spring.
