Mets place Jason Vargas on DL night before scheduled start
New York announced the move following an 8-3 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday night.
The left-handed Vargas is 2-6 with an 8.60 ERA in nine starts since opening the season on the DL with a broken right hand. He most recently gave up seven runs in 2 1/3 innings at Coors Field on Tuesday.
New York has not announced a replacement starter for Sunday’s game.
Chris Flexen has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Vargas’ spot.
