NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Mets can't seem to catch a break with injuries, especially to their catchers.
On the same day the team put Paul Lo Duca on the disabled list because of a strained right hamstring, backup Ramon Castro left Sunday's game against the Florida Marlins in the third inning because of back discomfort.
Castro is considered day-to-day.
Mike DiFelice, called up from Triple-A New Orleans, took Castro's place. He is the only other catcher on the roster.
Castro appeared to hurt himself in the top of the third on a play at the plate. Shawn Green's throw beat Cody Ross, but Castro lost the ball on the tag and Ross was safe.
The score was tied at 4.
