ST. LOUIS — Carlos Carrasco was shifted to the 60-day injured list by the New York Mets, a surprise move that pushes back his season debut until May 28 at the earliest.

The 34-year-old right-hander has been sidelined by an injured right hamstring since spring training and had been making progress.

He threw a simulated game Tuesday, and the team said Wednesday that Carrasco was starting a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment this weekend.

The Mets sent a release announcing the move to the 60-day IL.
