Mets’ Fra­zier frus­trated with um­pires

Mets third base­man Todd Fra­zier is ask­ing for a meet­ing with baseball Com­mis­sioner Rob Man­fred over his grow­ing frus­tra­tion with the way um­pires are call­ing balls and strikes.

Fra­zier said he re­cently met with an ump in San Diego. The eight-year vet­eran ar­gued with plate um­pire Lance Bar­rett dur­ing a 7-0 loss to Sean New­comb and the Braves on Wed­nes­day night.

“I’m not mak­ing ex­cuses. We lost fair and square,” Fra­zier said. “The kid pitched a hell of a game. But th­ese um­pires gotta get bet­ter. Bot­tom line.”

Mont­gomery could miss 8 weeks

HOUS­TON >> New York Yan­kees starter Jor­dan Mont­gomery could miss up to eight weeks be­cause of an in­jury to his left el­bow.

The Yan­kees put the pitcher on the 10-day dis­abled list Wed­nes­day with a strained left flexor.

Mont­gomery left Tues­day’s start with the in­jury af­ter the first in­ning. He is 2-0 with a 3.62 ERA in six games this year.
