The weak-hitting Mets made the moves before Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Cuddyer hasn’t played since Tuesday because of inflammation in his left knee. The move was made retroactive to Wednesday.

The 36-year-old Cuddyer is hitting .250 with eight home runs and 30 RBIs in 82 games. He won the 2013 NL batting title with Colorado, then signed a two-year, $21 million deal with the Mets last November.

The Mets selected Conforto’s contract from Double-A Binghamton. The 22-year-old was the 10th overall pick in the 2014 draft from Oregon State.

Conforto was batting .312 with five homers and 26 RBIs in 45 games at Binghamton after starting the year at high-A St. Lucie.

Conforto started in the All-Star Futures Game this month. He went 2 for 2 and threw a runner out at the plate.
