ATLANTA -- Scott Atchison is back on the disabled list without ever throwing a pitch in a game.

Atchison, who was activated Tuesday after a month absence, took the mound in the seventh inning on Tuesday night, only to depart after throwing a handful of warm-up pitches because of a groin strain.

Atchison had just been activated from a DL stint prompted by finger numbness related to a bone spur in his pitching elbow.

Atchison's return to the DL capped a flurry of moves since the Mets swept a Tuesday doubleheader. Eric Young Jr. was acquired from the Colorado Rockies for Collin McHugh. Collin Cowgill was designated for assignment. Andrew Brown was promoted from Las Vegas. And Zack Wheeler temporarily was demoted until he next is needed, to face the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.

Before Tuesday's doubleheader, Justin Turner had landed on the DL with an intercostal muscle strain on his left side.
