The New York Mets have activated shortstop day disabled list in time for the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Florida Marlins.

Reyes has been out since suffering a strained left hamstring in an August 7 game against the Braves. He hit 3-for-9 in three rehabilitation games with the Double-A Binghamton Mets.

In the final year of his contract, Reyes is batting .336 with 34 stolen bases and a major league-best 16 triples. He also landed on the DL in July with a similar injury.

The Mets optioned outfielder Mike Baxter to Triple-A Buffalo to open a roster spot. Baxter batted 4-for-16 in 10 games since his August 8 recall.
