KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Infielder Juan Uribe has been added to the New York Mets' World Series roster after recovering from a chest injury.

Uribe, who has not played since Sept. 25, takes the spot of backup shortstop Matt Reynolds, who was on the NL Championship Series roster but has never played in a major league game.

Uribe injured chest cartilage while making a diving stop on Sept. 20, then aggravated the injury on a swing while pinch hitting on Sept. 25.

He batted .219 with six homers in 44 games, playing second and third base after the Mets acquired him from Atlanta in late July.

Rosters were due Tuesday, nine hours ahead of the opener.
