Mets put INF Turner on DL, make several moves
NEW YORK (AP) The New York Mets have put infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle and cut right-handed reliever Manny Acosta.
The Mets recalled righty Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo and selected the contract of infielder Omar Quintanilla before Tuesday night's game. Quintanilla started at shortstop against Philadelphia.
Turner was hurt during a rundown Monday. A key pinch hitter, he is hitting .269 with 10 RBIs and has played all four infield positions.
Acosta was 1-2 with an 11.86 ERA in 19 games. The Mets designated him for assignment a day he gave up a game-breaking homer to Philadelphia's Ty Wigginton.
Schwinden is 0-1 in two starts for New York, shuttling between the majors and minors as the Mets deal with injuries.
``The bus from Buffalo arrived today, as it normally does,'' Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said.
