The New York Mets will activate left-hander Jonathon Niese from the 15-day disabled list, the team announced

They designated right-handed pitcher Buddy Carlyle for assignment​ in a corresponding roster move and the team has 10 days to trade him, ask for release waivers or outright him to the minors.

Niese has been on the disabled list since July 6 and is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Seattle Mariners. Niese ​was shelved in spring training with shoulder weakness and missed six weeks last season with a partial rotator cuff tear.
