Mets’ Carlos Carrasco out multiple weeks with low-grade oblique strain

The New York Mets will be without one of their starting pitchers for multiple weeks.

The team announced Tuesday that right-hander Carlos Carrasco suffered a low-grade left oblique strain during his last start and will miss three to four weeks.

With Carrasco being placed on the injured list, New York is expected to recall David Peterson from Triple-A Syracuse to take his spot in the rotation.

Carrasco is 13-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 23 starts this season. Before leaving Monday’s game with the injury, the 35-year-old was 5-0 with a 1.69 ERA over his last seven outings.
