Mets place OF Nimmo on IL, call up Rajai Davis


The New York Mets put outfielder Brandon Nimmo on the 10-day injured list with a stiff neck on Wedneday and called up journeyman Rajai Davis to take his spot on the roster.

Nimmo, who has struggled at the plate all season, had an MRI on Wednesday after experiencing a sharp pain in his neck earlier in the week. He is hitting .200 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 130 at-bats this season, far below last year’s numbers.

Davis, 38, was hitting .277 with three homers, seven RBIs and 14 steals in triple-A Syracuse.

The Mets also designated right-handed pitcher Paul Sewald for assignment.
