ST. LOUIS (AP) - The New York Mets have placed right-hander pitcher Scott Atchison on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow.
Atchison has been bothered by the ailment all season and said he had trouble feeling his fingers in Monday night's 6-3 loss at St. Louis. He gave up three hits and one run and did not record an out in 12 pitches.
Atchison is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in 19 appearances.
The Mets called up Collin McHugh from their Triple-A Las Vegas squad. McHugh was 3-2 with 2.74 ERA in eight appearances. McHugh, a starter, struck out 36 batters in 49 1-3 innings.
