The New York Mets announced Saturday that they reinstated infielder Eduardo Escobar from the 10-day injured list.

To make room on the roster, the Mets designated infielder Yolmer Sanchez for assignment.

Escobar was placed on the injured list on August 17 with a left oblique injury. The 33-year-old is hitting .214/.267/.648 with 12 home runs and 44 RBIs in 103 games this season.

With No. 2 prospect Brett Baty still with the big-league club, Escobar will likely start against left-handed pitching.

In another roster move, the Mets recalled Saturday’s starting pitcher, David Peterson, from Triple-A Syracuse and optioned right-hander Connor Grey.
