Mets recall Nick Plummer, option Yoan López to Triple-A Syracuse

The New York Mets made a couple of roster moves before Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The team recalled outfielder Nick Plummer from Triple-A Syracuse. To make room for him on the active 26-man roster, reliever Yoan López was sent back to Triple-A.

Plummer appeared in two games for the Mets back in April and replaces the injured Travis Jankowski as the team’s backup outfielder.

López was sent back to the minors after serving a one-game suspension on Friday.

In other news, manager Buck Showalter told reporters Saturday afternoon that outfielder Brandon Nimmo is dealing with a sore wrist and could receive a cortisone injection. He is considered day-to-day, per Showalter.
