NEW YORK (AP) The New York Mets have put starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey and left fielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list.

The team made the moves before Tuesday night's game against Miami.

Pelfrey is sidelined with swelling in his right elbow. General manager Sandy Alderson says a torn ligament has not been ruled out, and the pitcher will get a second opinion.

Bay broke a rib on his left side trying for a diving catch during Monday's doubleheader sweep by San Francisco. The Mets say an MRI exam showed a nondisplaced fracture.

New York recalled infielder Zach Lutz from Triple-A Buffalo and left-handed reliever Robert Carson from Double-A Binghamton. Chris Schwinden is likely to get called up from Buffalo to take Pelfrey's next turn in the rotation Friday at Colorado.
