Santana was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list to start against the Atlanta Braves.
Analysis: Called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Olson was ineffective against Miami in his lone outing for the Mets. He was charged with four runs, three hits and a walk while getting only one out. The Mets have 10 days to trade, release or send Olson outright to the minors.
