Justin Toscano of the Record reports that the New York Mets have activated Jeff McNeil from the 10-day IL prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves, but is not in the lineup. Aaron Altherr has been DFA’d to make room for him on the active roster.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com first reported he was at Citi Field awaiting a decision.
McNeil. 27, was dealing with a left hamstring strain that he suffered on August 13 by overextending it on a last-ditch effort stride to be safe at first base.
