Mets pitcher Buddy Carlyle could be headed to the disabled list, after leaving Monday's game against the Cubs with lower back stiffness, reports ESPN. Manager Terry Collins indicated that the club is unwilling to go several days with Carlyle active but unavailable.

"As we're seeing with someone else on this team, those are two injuries that go hand in hand. We'll probably be very careful. We'll have to check him again tomorrow, see what [trainer] Ray [Ramirez] thinks and make a determination where he is."
