[September 09, 2009]  NEW YORK (AP) -- Carlos Beltran is back in the lineup for the New York Mets.

HardwareSidelined since June 22 with a bone bruise on his right knee, the All-Star center fielder was activated from the disabled list Tuesday before the opener of a three-game series against the Florida Marlins.

Beltran, set to start in center and bat cleanup, says he's glad to be back with the Mets after a long rehabilitation. He says his most recent MRI showed the bruise on his knee has decreased in size.

Beltran went 3 for 18 with two RBIs and two walks in five rehab games with Class-A Brooklyn.

The Mets also purchased the contract of right-hander Tobi Stoner from Triple-A Buffalo.
