The New York Mets placed Robinson Cano on the injured list with a torn hamstring strain, marking the veteran second baseman's third IL stint in less than three months.

The Mets announced the move Monday, one day after Cano limped off the field during New York's victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Infielder Luis Guillorme was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move.

The team did not give a timetable for the eight-time All-Star's return but said no surgery will be required.

Cano, 36, is batting .252 with 10 home runs and 32 RBIs in 86 games this season, his first with the Mets.

Cano also spent time on the IL in late May and early June because of a quadriceps injury, playing in only one game between May 22 and June 16.
