HOUSTON, TX--

New York Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez will undergo season-ending right thumb surgery.

The 28-year-old tore a ligament in the thumb during his assault on his father-in-law at Citi Field last Wednesday night.

The Mets Medical Staff has recommended surgery, but no date has been set yet.

Rodriguez was arrested and charged with third-degree assault on Wednesday after a Mets loss to the Colorado Rockies.

He has one more season plus a player option left on his three-year contract.
