The New York Mets on Saturday activated offseason free agent acquisition Jed Lowrie from the 60-day injured list for the first time this season.
Lowrie, an infielder who signed a $20-million, two-year deal in January, had been sidelined since feeling pain in his left knee during spring training. He began the season on the IL, then dealt with injuries to his left hamstring and right calf.
The 35-year-old hit .234 with two home runs in 18 minor league games this season. He was activated before Saturday night’s game against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies.
Lowrie batted .267 with 23 homers in 157 games with Oakland last season.
