New York Mets starting catcher James McCann will undergo surgery for a fractured left hamate bone and is expected to miss about six weeks, the team announced Friday.

New York placed the 31-year-old on the 10-day injured list.

McCann missed a game Thursday with wrist soreness, which Mets manager Buck Showalter called "manageable" at the time. An X-ray Friday revealed a more serious injury.

The backstop has struggled to produce at the plate this season, posting a .196/.266/.286 line with one home run and six RBIs in 21 games. However, he's managed five defensive runs saved.

McCann owns a .227/.290/.341 slash line with 11 homers and 52 RBIs in 142 contests for the Mets since inking a four-year, $40-million deal with the club ahead of the 2021 campaign.

New York recalled catcher Patrick Mazeika in a corresponding move to fill McCann's spot on the active roster.
