Gardner saw Dr. Timothy Kremchek on Thursday for another opinion on the elbow that has kept him out of action since April 18.
It appears Mike Pelfrey’s one percent chance to avoid surgery is all but gone.

The Mets say starter Mike Pelfrey will likely undergo Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him until next year. Pelfrey has a partially torn ligament in his pitching elbow. He was put on the disabled list Tuesday when an MRI showed swelling in the joint.
