NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Mets activated outfielder Moises Alou from the disabled list Friday night and had him in the starting lineup, playing left field and batting fifth against the Washington Nationals.
Alou, signed as a free agent in last winter, was batting .318 in 30 games when he went on the DL on May 17 with a strained left quad. He missed 66 games.
After starting his rehabilitation assignment, Alou batted .333 in five rehab games with the Gulf Coast Mets and then went 1-for-4 with the Brooklyn Cyclones last Sunday. After the Cyclones game, he was diagnosed with tendinitis in his right shoulder, further delaying his return to the active roster.
In another move, the Mets brought up reliever Jon Adkins from Triple-A New Orleans. Adkins, obtained in a trade with San Diego last winter, was 1-3 with a 3,83 earned run average in 28 games at New Orleans.
The Mets are expected to recall pitcher Mike Pelfrey from New Orleans to start one game in Saturday's day-night doubleheader against Washington and will have to make another move at that time.
