Igarashi will be activated Sunday

Mets reliever Ryota Igarashi was in the Citi Field clubhouse Saturday afternoon and will be activated for Sunday night's game. Igarashi threw a scoreless inning in relief for Buffalo on Friday night and will be available to help the Mets' depleted bullpen on Sunday.

Jenrry Mejia and Manny Acosta were candidates for demotion to make room for Igarashi. The Mets opted to send Acosta down after Mejia pitched a scoreless seventh against the Yankees on Saturday night.
