NEW YORK -- Justin Turner is due to rejoin the Mets on Monday night. The Mets have yet to announce the corresponding roster move, although Terry Collins has suggested the Mets will drop a reliever.

Turner has been on the DL with a strained intercostal muscle on his left side.

Turner's first start may come Thursday, likely in place of Omar Quintanilla at shortstop, assuming the Mets face left-hander Paul Maholm.
