NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have put starter Seth Lugo on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement in the latest injury to the team’s rotation.

The Mets made the move Tuesday night before playing at Yankee Stadium. Lugo had been scheduled to pitch Wednesday night against the Yankees at Citi Field - Robert Gsellman was activated off the DL and will start in Lugo’s place.

Lugo joined Mets starters Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler on the DL. Steven Matz also missed considerable time this season.

Lugo is 5-3 with a 4.85 ERA. His move to the DL was retroactive to Aug. 12.

Gsellman is 5-5 with a 6.16 ERA this season. He’s been out since June 28 because of a strained left hamstring. He was 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA in four rehab starts at Double-A.
