Tom Glavine's health and his season are in jeopardy, a potentially crushing blow to the pitcher as well as to the Mets' World Series ambitions, the Daily News has learned. Sources said the southpaw has experienced coldness in a finger on his pitching hand, and that the cause of the alarming condition isn't yet known.

The 287-game winner is scheduled for a CT scan tomorrow, while an angiogram is planned for Wednesday.

Doctors are unsure whether the problem is related to a blood clot or possibly a "knot" in an artery near his left shoulder. Depending on the diagnosis, Glavine could miss little time or the rest of the season. The "knot" could require invasive surgery, while a clot might be able to be dissolved and limit the time lost.

Glavine has had problems like this since 1990.

I'm just praying he isn't out for an extended amount of time

I was listening to sportingnews.com radio this morning and heard that Glavine will NOT need surgery. However, there doesnt seem to be any info. online. Has anyone else heard anything?

Yeah, I have.

I just got finished reading the New York Post.

Great news about him. He's not going to need surgery, but will be on medication. He'll be back as soon as next week.
