WASHINGTON (AP) -The New York Mets placed infielder Damion Easley on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with a sprained left ankle and recalled infielder Anderson Hernandez from Triple-A New Orleans.
Easley hurt his ankle in the sixth inning of the Mets game with Washington on Saturday advancing to second on a wild pitch. He had X-rays and returned to New York on Sunday. He will have an MRI exam on Monday.
``We'll see how it plays out in the next couple of days. Hopefully, we'll get him back,'' Mets manager Willie Randolph said. ``It's tough because he's had a great year for us.''
Easley was batting .280 with 10 home runs and 26 RBIs.
Hernandez is batting .296 with 4 home runs and 40 RBIs with New Orleans. He was with the Mets for a week in July and was 1-for-2 in three games.
``He's swinging the bat well at Triple-A,'' Randolph said.
Randolph indicated that Hernandez' stay with the Mets might be short: ``Who knows? It could be temporary,'' Randolph said.
