In need of bullpen help with the current group struggling and overworked, the Mets called up RH reliever Tim Peterson and LH reliever Buddy Baumann from Triple-A Las Vegas, and RHP Scott Copeland from Double-A Binghamton before Wednesday's game against the Braves in Atlanta. 

With one 25-man roster spot already open, the Mets only had to send two players -- INF Phillip Evans and RH reliever Jacob Rhame -- to Triple-A to make room on the roster.

Aside from the 25-man roster moves, the Mets made two 40-man roster moves in order to make room for Peterson and Copeland, transferring Juan Lagares to the 60-day DL and designating P.J. Conlon for assignment.

After a slew of injurires, the Mets have recalled C Kevin Plawecki, RHP Hansel Robles, and INF Phillip Evans ahead of their doubleheader against the Braves on Monday. 

Plawecki, who has been out since April 11, returns to the Mets after rehabbing the hairline fracture in his right hand. He sustained the injury after getting hit during an at-bat. He recently caught nine innings for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, and belted a two-run homer on Wednesday night. 

Tomas Nido was sent down to make room for Plawecki...

Callaway gives Cespedes update 00:02:42
Mets manager Mickey Callaway discusses the team placing Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list.

Yoenis Cespedes has been placed on the 10-day DL due to a mild right hip flexor strain, with Phillip Evans called up from Triple-A Las Vegas.

The DL stint is backdated to May 14, meaning Cespedes will be eligible to return on May 24.

The hip injury is the same ailment Cespedes had been playing through recently. He was out of the lineup on Tuesday, but was available to pinch hit.
