NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have put star shortstop Jose Reyes on the disabled list with another hamstring problem and say infielder Daniel Murphy is likely done for the season because of a knee injury.

Both players were hurt during Sunday’s 6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Reyes left in the second inning because of stiffness in his left hamstring. The NL’s leading hitter was on the disabled list last month because of the same trouble.

Murphy left in the seventh inning with a sprained ligament in his left knee. He was spiked by Jose Constanza on a clean but awkward play. The Mets say Murphy probably won’t need surgery.

Infielder Ruben Tejada and outfielder Mike Baxter were promoted Monday from Triple-A Buffalo.
