The Mets are awaiting results of tests on catcher James McCann, and have summoned catcher Chance Sisco from Triple-A Syracuse in case McCann needs to be placed on the injured list.

Sisco was activated before Wednesday's game, with the Mets optioning RHP Yennsy Diaz to Triple-A Syracuse.

McCann was a late scratch on Tuesday because of back spasms. With Tomas Nido already on the IL, that left New York with just Patrick Mazeika at the position.

Sisco, 26, has a cool name and a .658 OPS in parts of five seasons with Baltimore. The Mets acquired him on a waiver claim in June. He has a .745 OPS in Triple-A this year.
