Mets reliever J.J. Putz will have surgery Tuesday to remove bone spurs in his elbow. He'll likely be out for at least two months.

It's not like the Mets can't live without Putz, especially the way he's been pitching lately, but that makes two major signings this offseason who are headed to the DL, either permanently or for an extended period of time.
