Report: Mets' Buddy Carlyle could be headed to the disabled list
by Igor Mello |

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.

"He needed help to get down the steps when his back tightened up and his hamstring tightened up on him," Collins said of Carlyle's exit on Monday. "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."

Triple-A Las Vegas relievers Chasen Bradford, Zack Thornton and Jack Leathersich are all candidates to take Carlyle's spot in the bullpen if he lands on the DL.
