New York Mets Pitcher Heading To Injured List

Tommy Hunter will be out for the New York Mets, as the veteran reliever has been placed on the 15-day injured list with lower back tightness.

It's hard not to feel bad for Hunter, as the injury bug never seems to leave him alone. He was limited to just four games last season but ended up making the Mets' roster midway through the season. Since then, he has looked solid for the squad. In 11 appearances, he has a 2.51 ERA. Thus, losing him yet again isn't ideal for the Mets.

Here's to hoping that the 15-year veteran can return to the mound as soon as this stint on the 15-day IL is over.
