Lutz’s surgery will be performed by Mets Hand Specialist Dr. Andrew Weiland at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.
Lutz broke his hamate bone while with Triple-A Buffalo and missed 49 games while on the disabled list earlier this season.
Lutz was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo when rosters expanded at the beginning of September. In seven games for the Mets this season, Lutz went 1-for-11 with five strikeouts.
Lutz hit .295 with 11 home runs and 43 RBI in 254 at-bats over 78 games between Single-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Buffalo this season.
