The New York Mets made some roster moves prior to Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves.
The team placed reliever Trevor May on the 15-day injured list with right triceps inflammation and recalled reliever Adonis Medina from the Syracuse Mets.
May told reporters following the Mets’ 5-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Monday night that he’s been pitching through an injury.
“I’m not feeling 100 percent healthy. Trying to work through some stuff. Not really battling through it,” May said. “It’s hard to compete when you’re just worried if something is going to hurt when you throw, to the point where I’m not very comfortable throwing my best pitches and taking too much time in between pitches to reset and try to get a little bit of energy to throw another one. By the end [of my outing] I was hoping that the ball was hit to someone. That’s no way to throw in a major league game.”
May has allowed eight runs over 8.1 innings this season while Medina has allowed two runs over six innings with Syracuse this season.
The Mets also recalled left-hander David Peterson from Triple-A Syracuse. He will serve as the 27th man for Tuesday’s doubleheader.
