Toronto, ON – The New York Mets placed pitcher Miguel Batista on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a back injury.
The right-hander left Saturday's start against Toronto after just two innings because of stiffness in his lower back. He is 1-1 with a 3.95 earned run average in 13 games this season, including four starts.
The Mets recalled righty Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo. He was 3-2 with a 2.54 ERA in seven starts for the Bisons.
