Angel Pagan was supposed to get a few at-bats in the minors before returning from an oblique injury, but rain washed away the Triple-A game he was supposed to play in last night and the Mets have decided to activate him from the disabled list anyway.
Pagan, who hasn’t played since April 21, is starting in center field and batting sixth, whereas he was hitting second at the time of the injury.
Jason Pridie has been the primary fill-in for Pagan, but came back down to earth after a strong start and is hitting just .224 with a .680 OPS in his last 20 games.
