Mets activate Pagan from DL, send down Martinez


NEW YORK (AP) - Center fielder Angel Pagan is back in the New York Mets' lineup after missing more than a month with a strained muscle on his left side.

Pagan was activated from the disabled list Friday and was in the starting lineup as the Mets opened a 10-game homestand against Philadelphia. Pagan batted sixth - manager Terry Collins said he wanted to let the speedy switch-hitter get comfortable before putting him in the No. 2 spot again.

The Mets also called up right-hander Dale Thayer from Triple-A Buffalo to help a taxed bullpen. New York optioned outfielder Fernando Martinez to Buffalo and designated left-hander Pat Misch for assignment.

R.A. Dickey, who left Thursday's game against the Chicago Cubs with a foot injury, hopes to make his next start.
