NEW YORK (AP) -The Mets activated speedy outfielder Carlos Gomez from the 60-day disabled list Friday before their game against the Houston Astros.
Gomez had been out since July 5 with a broken left hand. The rookie was batting .250 with two homers, 11 RBIs and nine stolen bases in 108 at-bats when he got hurt. He was called up from Triple-A New Orleans on May 13.
Gomez could see action as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement down the stretch for the NL East leaders.
``That's going to be his value,'' manager Willie Randolph said. ``A big asset to have this time of year.''
