Mets put Jed Lowrie on injured list with knee discomfort

The New York Mets put infielder Jed Lowrie on the injured list with left knee discomfort, his latest setback.

He is scheduled to be examined by team medical director Dr. David Altchek.

Lowrie, 36, an All-Star in 2018 with Oakland, has hardly been able to play for New York since signing a $20 million, two-year contract. He was limited by leg injuries to eight hitless plate appearances late last season.

The Mets also placed right-hander Walker Lockett on the injured list with lower back discomfort.
