It was a busy day for the Mets at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Hotshot pitching prospect Jenrry Mejia had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow performed by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. After that, Altchek performed surgery on starting pitcher Chris Young to repair a tear of the anterior capsule of his right shoulder.

Alderson said both of those surgeries went well.

Mejia was 0-4 with a 4.62 ERA in three starts and 30 relief appearances for the Mets last season and 1-2 with a 2.86 ERA in five starts this year at Triple-A Buffalo. The right-hander is widely considered the organization’s top pitching prospect.

The oft-injured Young was 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA in four starts for the Mets.

In a bit of positive injury news, first baseman Ike Davis was in the clubhouse and said he should be ready to come off the disabled list when he’s eligible May 26.

Davis sprained his ankle last Tuesday when he bumped into Wright as they tracked a popup.

“It feels good. It’s still a little stiff, just from spraining it. That’s going to happen,” Davis said. “The next couple of days, I’ll be fine.”

Davis, who is hitting .302 with seven homers and a team-high 25 RBIs, is expected to leave for the Mets’ training complex in Florida later this week to continue his rehabilitation.

“You always want to be out there. You miss the guys, you miss the competition, especially when they’re winning,” he said. “I’ll be in Florida and hopefully they’ll just keep winning, and I’ll come back and they’ll be in first place.”
