PITTSBURGH (AP) -New York Mets utilityman Marlon Anderson was taken off the bereavement list Tuesday in time for the start of a three-game series against the Pirates and David Newhan returned to Triple-A New Orleans.
Newhan has a .203 average with one homer and five RBIs in multiple stays with the Mets this season. He was most recently called up July 29 after catcher Paul Lo Duca injured a hamstring, a move made only 12 days after Newhan was sent down to New Orleans.
Anderson went on the bereavement list Friday to attend his grandmother's funeral. That move came the day after he sprained his left wrist against Atlanta.
Anderson is hitting .250 in 60 at-bats for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Mets this season. The Dodgers released Anderson on July 9, and he signed a minor league deal with New York.
