DENVER (AP) -Left-hander Oliver Perez was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday by the New York Mets, a move retroactive to June 27.
``He has some soreness in his lower back, but nothing wrong with his arm,'' manager Willie Randolph said.
Perez is 7-6 with a 3.14 ERA in 15 starts for the Mets, who recalled left-hander Jason Vargas from Triple-A New Orleans to take Perez's roster spot. Vargas is to start against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Vargas was 6-5 with a 4.35 ERA in 13 starts at New Orleans, where he struck out 56 and walked 23 in 72 1-3 innings.
