NEW YORK (AP) -Mets outfielder Shawn Green went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of a broken right foot, the first time he's been on the DL in his major league career.
New York recalled outfielder Ben Johnson from Triple-A New Orleans before Tuesday night's game against San Francisco.
Green fouled a ball off his foot on Friday, and the move was made retroactive to Saturday. The Mets expect Green will be able to begin running in about 10 days.
The 34-year-old Green started his big league career in 1993. He is hitting .314 with five home runs and 22 RBIs this season.
Johnson was hitting .282 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 21 games at New Orleans.
Along with Green, outfielders Carlos Gomez and Moises Alou and infielder Jose Valentin were examined by team physician Dr. Straun Coleman.
Gomez has a slight strain in his left hamstring and was in the starting lineup against the Giants.
Alou, who is eligible to come off the disabled list, is day to day because of a strained left quadriceps. Valentin, sidelined since April 29 because of a partially torn ligament in his right knee, was cleared to start playing in a brace.
