More injury news for the New York Mets.
The team placed Tylor Megill on the 15-day injured list after an MRI revealed a right shoulder strain, the team announced Friday. The right-hander will be shut down from throwing for at least four weeks.
Megill left Thursday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers in the fourth inning due to discomfort in the back of his right shoulder.
This is Megill’s second IL stint this season. He returned to the rotation on June 10 after dealing with right biceps tendinitis. Megill is 4-2 with a 5.01 ERA over nine starts this season. He has 47 strikeouts in 41 1/3 innings.
In other corresponding moves, the team recalled reliever Adonis Medina from Triple-A Syracuse, selected veteran reliever Tommy Hunter to a Major League contract, and added him to the 26-man roster. Reliever Jake Reed was optioned to Triple-A, and infielder Gosuke Katoh was designated for assignment.
