The New York Mets made a couple of roster moves before Tuesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.
The team reinstated starting pitcher Max Scherzer from the injured list and designated reliever Chasen Shreve for assignment to make room on the 26-man roster.
Scherzer has been sidelined since May 18, when he departed his start with what was later diagnosed as a left oblique strain.
The right-hander just completed a minor-league rehab assignment with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He struck out 14 batters in six innings across two starts.
The 37-year-old Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young winner and eight-time All-Star owns a 2.54 ERA with 59 strikeouts through eight starts and 49 2/3 innings this season.
Shreve posted a 6.49 ERA over 26 1/3 innings with the Mets this season.
