PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The New York Mets have placed center fielder Juan Lagares on the 15-day disabled list with a ribcage injury and recalled outfielder Matt den Dekker from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lagares has a strained right intercostal muscle. Den Dekker started in center field Monday night and led off in the finale of a five-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Lagares is hitting .288 with two homers and 18 RBIs. Den Dekker was 0 for 4 in three games with the Mets before being sent to Triple-A on Sunday.

Chris Young will split time with den Dekker in center while Lagares is out.
