Hunter (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Hunter has been out since late May due to lower-back soreness. The issue is evidently serious enough to keep him out past the All-Star break. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mets to add Nick Tropeano, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.
