NEW YORK — The New York Mets have put second baseman Daniel Murphy on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right calf and promoted infielder Dilson Herrera from Double-A.

The Mets made the moves Thursday night after a 6-1 loss to Atlanta.

Murphy had a MRI, and additional information was expected to be available on Friday.

"It's frustrating," Murphy said. "It ended up being a little worse than I thought. It's frustrating to the other 24 guys in here. It's always nice to stay off the DL. I have to be smart about it and try to get healthy."

The 20-year-old Herrera was called up from Double-A Binghamton. He was hitting a combined .319 with 12 home runs and 70 RBIs at Double-A and Single-A.

The Mets acquired Herrera last year in the trade that sent Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. Herrera primarily has played second base.
