Mets CF Torres activated from DL
HOUSTON (AP) New York Mets center fielder Andres Torres has been activated from the disabled list and is in the lineup for Monday night's game against the Houston Astros.
Torres has been on the disabled list since April 6 with a strained left calf. He hit .263 with four runs scored, an RBI and three stolen bases in five games in a minor league rehabilitation assignment.
Torres, who is in his first season with the Mets, had four homers and 19 RBIs with 19 stolen bases last season for San Francisco.
Infielder Zach Lutz was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday to make room for Torres.
Also on Monday, right fielder Lucas Duda was out of the lineup because of flulike symptoms.
