Hefner (elbow) made his third rehab start for the Gulf Coast Mets, allowing one run on three hits while striking out one in three innings Tuesday.
Hefner is slowing making his way back from Tommy John surgery, increasing the innings thrown in each of his outings. He underwent surgery August 28 last year and believes he could be back in the major leagues in September. Hefner may make 1-2 more starts for the GCL Mets but it would not be surprising to see him move up a level or two for his next rehab outing.
