Mets activate Bartolo Colon from the bereavement list
Colon was placed on the list Monday to visit his mother in the Dominican Republic, who they said is "critically ill."
The team optioned right-hander Gonzalez Germen to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for Colon.
Colon is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's game versus the Dodgers. The 41-year-old is 11-10 with a 3.85 ERA this season.
The Mets are in fourth place in the NL East with a 60-68 record.
On Friday's SI Now, Sports Illustrated's baseball panel discusses the possibility of a woman playing Major League Baseball and why she will need to be on Jackie Robinson's level physically and mentally.
