New York Mets right-hander Dellin Betances was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement, the team announced Thursday.

Side-arming right-hander Trevor Hildenberger was added to the roster in a corresponding move.

Betances, 33, sputtered in his season debut on Wednesday, allowing one run and one walk in one inning of a no-decision against the Philadelphia Phillies.
