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.
