The Mets have placed Scott Atchison on the disabled list with a sore right groin. Atchison left Tuesday night’s game after pulling his groin while warming up in the seventh inning after he was activated off the DL earlier that day. The move brings the Mets back to 25 players on the roster.
Mets waste no time and will have Eric Young Jr. batting leadoff and playing center field tonight.
Shaun Marcum struggled in his last outing, allowing six runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Cubs, and he’s still winless on the season.
Marlon Byrd has five home runs and nine RBIs this month. He also hit five home runs in May and has seven home runs in his last 18 games.
