The Mets activated first baseman Lucas Duda off the disabled list on Monday, reports ESPN New York's Adam Rubin. Duda was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 22 with a strain in his lower back. He is not in the Mets’ lineup on Monday, but will be available off the bench.

Duda played two rehab games in Binghamton over the weekend, and Binghamton Mets manager Pedro Lopez confirmed he expected the first basemen to come off the disabled list by Monday.

Duda, 29, is batting .247 with a .346 on-base percentage this season and leads the Mets with a .472 slugging percentage. He batted .295 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs in his last 18 games before the injury.

The Mets will take on the Nationals in a three-game series beginning Monday before heading to Atlanta to take on the Braves.
