Mets Mike Pelfrey Placed On 15-Day Disabled List
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Injuries continue to take their told on the Mets.
The New York Mets have put starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey and left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list.
The Mets made the moves before Tuesday night’s game against Miami.
Pelfrey is sidelined with inflammation in his right elbow. But Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says the team hasn’t ruled out a torn ligament, and says Pelfrey will get a second opinion.
Pelfrey is getting an MRI on his throwing elbow Tuesday to determine whether there’s any structural damage.
Robert Carson has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take the right-hander’s 25-man roster spot, but a rotation replacement has not been decided upon.
