MIAMI (AP) - The New York Mets have lost their third pitcher for the season in two days, an alarming rate even by their standards.

Oliver Perez was examined Wednesday in New York and the team says the left-hander needs season-ending surgery to repair patella
tendon tendinosis in his right knee.

The injury ends a dismal season for Perez, who is expected to fully recover and be ready for spring training. He becomes the 13th Mets player on the disabled list, with the pitching staff especially hard-hit this week.

On Tuesday, the Mets announced ace Johan Santana and reliever J.J. Putz are out for the season.
