Mets RHP Buchholz is out with depression, anxiety
NEW YORK (AP)
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team has waited to disclose Buchholz's condition until he was comfortable with it becoming public.
Buchholz said in a statement the Mets released Friday before their game against the crosstown rival Yankees that he also suffered from depression and anxiety last season with the Colorado Rockies before he returned from Tommy John surgery.
Buchholz is taking new medication and says he is not supposed to pitch until he adjusts to the dosage.
Buchholz went on the DL June 2, retroactive to May 30 with shoulder fatigue.
