PITTSBURGH (AP) - The New York Mets recalled outfielder Lucas Duda on Friday and immediately put him in the lineup against the Pirates.

Duda was 2 for 20 with one RBI in 10 games with the Mets earlier this season. The 25-year-old was hitting .302 with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs in 38 games at Triple-A Buffalo.

Mets manager Terry Collins is giving slumping slugger Jason Bay (no hits in his past 23 at bats) some time off to work on his swing. Collins said Duda will likely play against right-handed pitchers to start.

After Thursday night’s win in Milwaukee, New York designated outfielder Nick Evans for assignment.
