New York Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson will endure a medical procedure this week, which has not been disclosed to the public yet.

According to assistant GM John Ricco, Alderson will not be able to attend the general manager meetings that run through Thursday at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. He also said, by Alderson’s request the procedure will stay private.

“He had a medical procedure that was scheduled for after the season ended,” Ricco said. “Because of the playoff run, it got pushed back, and kept getting pushed and pushed, obviously for good reason. And so he was going to have it done this week.”

Alderson, 67, collapsed while he was speaking to the press on Wednesday at Citi Field. However, Ricco is not allowed to inform if that incident is connected to the procedure.

Mets business matters at the annual meetings will be handled by deputies J.P. Ricciardi, Paul DePodesta and Ricco. They will keep Alderson informed about the meetings.

“I’m just going to keep it to that …just respect Sandy’s privacy on this one,” Ricco said. “… He asked me to just kind of keep it at that. At some point we’ll have more to say. I don’t want to portray that there’s something extremely urgent about it. He feels comfortable we’re down here. We’re a pretty veteran group. We’re capable of handling it.”

According to Ricco, Agents and other teams meetings would happen during this week, even if Alderson is not present.

“I’ll be in communication with him,” Ricco said. “We do most of our work over the phone and remotely anyway. We don’t have to all be in the same room. We can certainly do whatever we need to do.”
