DETROIT (AP) -New York Mets outfielder Moises Alou left the team Sunday morning to fly back home for an examination on his strained left quadriceps.
Outfielder Shawn Green is expected to be activated from the disabled list Monday.
Alou was scheduled to be examined Monday in New York and will likely make the next step of his comeback at the Mets' minor league facility in Florida. Alou, injured on May 12, is hitting .318 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 30 games.
Green has been out since breaking his right foot May 25, an injury that put him on the DL for the first time in his major league career that started in 1993. Green is hitting .314 with five homers and 22 RBIs in 45 games.
