New York Mets center fielder Angel Pagan is back and in the lineup.

Pagan was activated from the disabled list and will hit sixth on Friday night when the Mets take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

Pagan had been on the DL for over a month with a left oblique strain. He did the majority of his rehab at Class A St. Lucie, where he batted .226 in eight games.

Pagan was supposed to face higher-level pitching during his lone rehab start at Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday night, but the game was postponed due to rain.

Pagan is batting just .159 with a homer and six RBIs for the Mets this season. He last appeared in a game on April 21, going 0-for-3 against the Houston Astros.

He was placed on the DL the following day.

The lineup:

Jose Reyes, ss
Justin Turner, 3b
Carlos Beltran, rf
Jason Bay, lf
Daniel Murphy, 1b
Angel Pagan, cf
Ronny Paulino, c
Ruben Tejada, 2b
Chris Capuano, lhp
