The Mets announced a series of roster moves Thursday, placing Eduardo Nunez on the 10-day injured list with a left knee contusion and selecting the contract of veteran second baseman Brian Dozier in his place. In order to open a spot on the roster for Dozier, New York designated right-hander Hunter Strickland for assignment. Lefty Daniel Zamora is up from the team’s alternate training site to take Strickland’s spot on the 30-man roster.
Dozier, 33, inked a minor league deal with the Mets midway through summer camp after being let go by the Padres. He’s already in Thursday’s lineup and will give the club some thump against lefty starter Martin Perez.
