NEW YORK -- Even in the off-season, the New York Mets get hurt.

Outfielder Lucas Duda broke his right wrist while moving furniture last month at his apartment in Southern California. The team says he had surgery Monday and is expected to be ready for spring training in February.

Duda was operated on by Dr. Andrew Weiland at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The Mets say Duda will be discharged from the hospital Tuesday.

The 26-year-old slumped to a .239 average with 15 homers and 57 RBIs in 459 plate appearances this year, down from a .292 average with 10 homers and 50 RBIs in 347 plate appearances in 2011.

Also, reserve catcher Mike Nickeas and outfielder Fred Lewis each rejected outright assignments to Triple-A Las Vegas and elected free agency.
