Lefty Johan Santana returns from a stint on the disabled list tonight when the New York Mets host the Atlanta Braves in game two of a three-game series at Citi Field.

The 33-year-old Venezuelan improved to 6-4 on the season with eight innings of scoreless ball in a 5-0 defeat of the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 30, then lost three straight decisions - allowing 28 hits and 19 runs in 12 2/3 innings - before he was shelved with a sprained right ankle on July 21.

Santana dropped a 6-1 decision to the Braves and fell to 3-8 lifetime against them on July 15 at Turner Field, when he was touched for eight hits and six runs in five innings.

In 15 career starts against Atlanta, he's posted a 2.99 earned run average and struck out 69 batters in 90 1/3 innings.

Santana is 4-3 in 10 home starts this season with a pair of complete-game shutouts - including a June 1 no-hitter against St. Louis that was the first in Mets history.

In Friday's series opener, Paul Maholm fired his fourth career shutout Friday as the Braves blanked the Mets, 4-0.

Maholm (10-7), who was acquired from the Chicago Cubs before the non-waiver trade deadline, allowed just three hits and struck out five without walking a batter to earn his first victory as a Brave.

"Obviously it's pretty good to get off to a good start with a new team," Maholm said. "To get a complete game in my first win is a lot of fun."

Jose Reyes will be activated for Game 2 of the Double Header

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  the New York Mets plan to activate Jose Reyes for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Florida Marlins, manager Terry Collins said.

Reyes delayed plans Sunday to travel to New York because of Hurricane Irene and was due to drive back Monday morning. He played three rehab games at Binghamton, N.Y., with the Mets' Double-A affiliate.

Reyes last appeared in a major league game Aug. 7. He had been idle because of a strained left hamstring for the second time during the second half of the season.

To guard against future injury, Collins said he would strategically rest Reyes the remainder of the season, and duplicate that plan next season assuming the shortstop re-signs with the organization as a free agent. Collins reasoned that it is better to have Reyes in the lineup for 150 games healthy than watch him land on the disabled list and only have him for 100 games.

Ruben Tejada, who has manned shortstop in Reyes' absence, will share second-base duties with Justin Turner for the remainder of the season, according to Collins. The manager said he may periodically rest David Wright and use Turner at third base, allowing both Tejada and Turner to be in the lineup.

"I'm going to make sure Tejada gets at-bats," Collins said. "He deserves it. He earned it."

Pagan will be activated Friday from DL

According to Adam Rubin of, Mets manager Terry Collins said this afternoon that Angel Pagan will play one game with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday before being activated from the disabled list for Friday’s series opener against the Phillies.

Pagan has been sidelined since April 21 with a strained left oblique. He was on the verge of returning earlier this month, but was shut down after feeling more pain in his side. He went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, two walks a run scored in a rehab game with High-A St. Lucie earlier this afternoon and is batting .263 (5-for-19) with one home run, one double and two RBI during his most recent rehab assignment.

Ronny Paulino Activated, Nickeas Optioned

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, The New York Mets activated catcher Ronny Paulino from the disabled list and demoted Mike Nickeas to Triple-A Buffalo.

Paulino signed a $1.3 million free-agent contract in early December to serve as a right-hitting complement to Josh Thole behind the plate.

He had difficulty securing a visa because of a 50-game MLB suspension for a performance-enhancing substance and arrived late to spring training.

Team doctors discovered Paulino had issues with anemia, so Paulino was placed on the disabled list after the remaining eight games of his suspension were completed while his blood levels returned to more normal levels.

He was eligible to be activated from the DL on Tuesday, but tweaked a side muscle last weekend with Triple-A Buffalo, further stalling his return.

Paulino hit .190 (8-for-42) with four RBIs and a walk in 12 rehab games between Class A St. Lucie and Buffalo.

Manager Terry Collins indicated he plans to platoon the left-hitting Thole and Paulino, with the exception of Thole catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey regardless of the opposing pitcher.

Nickeas hit .250 with 20 at-bats and belted his first major league homer on April 21, off Houston's J.A. Happ.
