Mets place Nimmo on DL with partially collapsed lung

ST. LOUIS (AP) The New York Mets placed outfielder Brandon Nimmo on the 10-day disabled list with a partially collapsed lung.

Nimmo said he started feeling discomfort after the Mets' game on July 4, but could not recall a particular event that caused the injury.

Nimmo is hitting .350 with two RBIs in 15 games.

Outfielder Michael Conforto (bruised left hand) was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
