Mets summoning Ruben Tejada with Jeff McNeil going on IL

The Mets are calling on a familiar face to help cope with their latest injury.

They’re calling up Ruben Tejada as Jeff McNeil is going on the 10-day injured list with a mild left hamstring strain, The Post’s Mike Puma confirmed. McNeil underwent an MRI Wednesday.

McNeil hurt his hamstring in Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Braves while trying to beat out an infield hit in the ninth inning.

“It didn’t feel great, but I don’t think it’s terrible,” McNeil said after the game.

Tejada, 29, was signed by the Mets in March and hasn’t appeared in a major-league game since 2017 with the Orioles. He spent his first six MLB seasons with the Mets, who originally signed him in 2006. He’s most remembered for suffering a fractured leg from a Chase Utley slide during the 2015 NLDS. Tejada is hitting .330 in 71 games with Triple-A Syracuse.
