The Mets will activate infielder Jose Reyes from his minor league assignment on Tuesday, the team announced.
Reyes has not played this season due to a domestic violence suspension. He was signed on June 25 after being released by the Rockies.
He was arrested Oct. 31 following a physical altercation with his wife at a resort in Hawaii, allegedly grabbing her by the throat and pushing her into a sliding-glass door. Domestic abuse charges were dropped in April after his wife did not cooperate with prosecutors, and Reyes was suspended without pay through May 31 by MLB.
The Mets sent Reyes to Class A Brooklyn after signing him, where he played third base and shortstop. With David Wright on the disabled list and Asdrubal Cabrera in place as the team’s shortstop, the Mets are looking for an upgrade over Wilmer Flores at third. The team has also reportedly considered deploying Reyes in the outfield.
Reyes spent his first nine MLB seasons with the Mets, after signing as a 16-year-old in 1999. He has also played for the Marlins and Blue Jays.
