The New York Mets enter a weekend series against the San Francisco Giants coming off an 11-2 win over the Philadelpiha Phillies. The win improved the Mets to 52-56, fourth in the National League East. On the injury front, backup catcher Taylor Teagarden has been activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A. Anthony Recker will serve as the backup catcher to Travis d'Arnaud.

Our own Darius Austin reported on July 14 that Teagarden started his rehab with the Gulf Coast League Mets. He played into the sixth inning, going 0-for-1 with a walk.

Mike Puma, who covers the Mets for the New York Post, tweeted the following on Teagarden.
Teagarden has played in four games with the Gulf Coast League Mets this season, going 2-for-10 with two doubles.  In 40 games this season at Las Vegas, Teagarden is batting .266 with nine home runs and 23 RBI.

In nine games with the Mets this season, Teagarden is batting .143 with a home run and five RBI.  The journeyman backup catcher has played for the Rangers, Orioles and Mets and has a career batting average of .202 with 21 home runs and 68 RBI.
