The Mets made a roster move on Sunday, as Michael Conforto (concussion) was activated off IL and Rajai Davis was designated for assignment.
Conforto said Friday that he could be play this weekend in the Tigers series, and that's exactly what he's doing batting third in the lineup today.
The 26-year-old was heating up before going on the IL after his collision with Robinson Cano last week in the field. Conforto is slashing .271/.406/.521 with nine homers and 21 RBI this season.
It's a good sight to see Conforto back with Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil still on the IL.
Davis, on the other hand, played only four games with the Mets. He had a big home run this past Wednesday, putting the game against the Nationals out of reach. If Davis clears waivers, the Mets can add him back to the Triple-A roster. If he doesn't, though, the Mets may go looking for some more outfield help.
In his four games with New York, Davis went 2-for-7 with his homer and three RBI.
