The Mets are calling up reliever Tim Peterson from Triple-A Las Vegas, reports Betsy Helfand of The Las Vegas Review-Journal.
In order to promote Peterson, who was sent down on June 14, the Mets will need to place someone currently on the 25-man roster on the DL. The reason is because a player must spend at least 10 days in the minors after being optioned, unless he is replacing an injured player.
Jay Bruce, who is dealing with multiple injuries and has played in just one game since last Wednesday, was set to be reevaulated Tuesday -- with a DL stint possible.
