Chris Schwinden will be on the team’s taxi squad for tomorrow’s game against the Blue Jays, the team announced.
Earlier today, Miguel Batista strained a muscle in his lower back, and Terry Collins said after today’s game it was possible he could go on the disabled list.
Earlier this season, Schwinden was ineffective as a starting pitcher for the Mets, going 0-1 with an 11.25 ERA in eight innings over two starts.
However, Schwinden has gone 3-2 with a 2.54 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Buffalo so far this season.
Before today’s game against the Blue Jays, Terry Collins said the Mets would add another player to the bench when they return to National League play against the Pirates on Monday.
In 40 games for the Bisons this season, Satin has hit .265 with two home runs and 12 RBI with nine doubles in 132 at-bats.
