NEW YORK (AP) — Robinson Canó is right back on the injured list.
Four days after returning to the lineup, the second baseman was placed on the 10-day IL again by the New York Mets with tightness in his left quadriceps. The move was made Sunday, retroactive to Thursday, after Canó aggravated the injury Wednesday night in his first game since May 22.
The eight-time All-Star says he feels good but agrees with the team’s decision because he’s had only two at-bats in 2½ weeks and wants to be able to play a full game and contribute offensively as soon as he comes back. The 36-year-old Canó says he’s scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Syracuse or Double-A Binghamton.
The move means Canó will miss two Subway Series games against his former team at Yankee Stadium this week.
To replace him on the roster, New York selected the contract of right-handed reliever Tim Peterson from Syracuse.
