Jeremy Hefner will see a doctor Tuesday to help determine whether he will require Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for most if not all of the 2014 season.

The Mets initially had indicated the appointment would be today.

Hefner has a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right elbow.
