The New York Mets made some roster moves before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Catcher Francisco Alvarez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left thumb. Catcher Tomas Nido was added to the roster from Triple-A Syracuse. To clear room on the 40-man roster, left-hander Kolton Ingram was designated for assignment. 


Alvarez suffered the injury in the second inning of Friday’s 9-4 victory. 

The 22-year-old hit .236/.288/.430 with one home run and eight runs batted over 16 games before he got hurt.
