Mets place Travis Jankowski on injured list with fractured finger

The New York Mets made several roster moves before Friday’s series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The team placed outfielder Travis Jankowski on the 10-day injured list with a left fourth metacarpal fracture. The 30-year-old underwent surgery Friday, and the Mets expect him to miss six-to-eight weeks. New York also optioned starting pitcher Thomas Szapucki to Triple-A Syracuse, who really struggled in his first MLB start on Wednesday at San Francisco.


In corresponding moves, the Mets recalled relievers Yoan López and Stephen Nogosek from Triple-A.

Despite being recalled, López will not be available for Friday’s game as he will be serving a one-game suspension for an incident that happened on May 1. The right-hander threw two pitches inside to Philadelphia’s Kyle Schwarber and then drilled Alec Bohm.
