Reliever Scott Atchison, who had renewed numbness in his right fingers because of a bone spur in his pitching elbow, received a second opinion from doctor James Andrews. Andrews concurred with Mets doctors that Atchison did not need surgery now to remove the spur, which has irritated a nerve, the team announced.

Atchison will attempt to resume throwing after returning to Port St. Lucie.
