NEW YORK -- Gonzalez Germen is inching closer to a return from the disabled list.
Sandy Alderson told ESPNNewYork.com that Germen now is scheduled to make another rehab appearance on Monday night for Class A St. Lucie.
After that Florida State League appearance, team officials will evaluate whether to activate Germen from the DL.
Terry Collins has said Germen will rejoin the Mets when his rehab assignment is complete and not be optioned to the minors at that point.
The 26-year-old reliever last appeared for the Mets on May 5. He officially was placed on the disabled list with a virus. Alderson subsequently said Germen also was dealing with an abscess.
