Mets LHP Jason Vargas is headed to the disabled list after injuring his calf during conditioning earlier this week, manager Mickey Callaway said after Saturday's game.
Vargas was slated to start the series finale against the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.
The Mets will promote RHP Chris Flexen from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Vargas' place but there is not yet any indication he will start on Sunday, reports Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Vargas allowed seven runs -- including three home runs -- on nine hits in 2 1/3 innings against the Rockies his last time out.
Vargas has a 8.60 ERA/6.55 FIP and 1.832 WHIP in 37.2 innings across nine starts this season for the Mets.
