New York Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer has been activated from the disabled list, the team announced Monday.

To make room for Cuddyer, third baseman Eric Campbell was optioned to Triple A Las Vegas.

Cuddyer, 36, missed 17 games with a bone bruise in his left knee.

He had hoped to be ready to play in the Mets' weekend series against the Rays, but instead will face his former team in his first game back as the Mets take on the Rockies at home.

Cuddyer is hitting .250 with a .303 on-base percentage this season. He joins a Mets offense that ranks last in the majors with a .237 batting average.

The Mets went 10–7 in Cuddyer's absence, including a seven-game winning streak that catapulted them to the top of the NL East, where New York now leads the Nationals by 1 1/2 games.
