SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Reliever Jenrry Mejia has rejoined the New York Mets after completing an 80-game suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Mejia was activated from the restricted list before Tuesday night’s game between the Mets and San Francisco Giants at AT&T; Park. The right-hander, who pitched in a rehab game on Sunday, was in uniform and available to play.

Mejia was suspended in April after testing positive for the steroid Stanozolol. The 25-year-old pitcher has said he never knowingly took the steroid.

To clear room on the 40-man roster the Mets transferred Buddy Carlyle to the 60-day disabled list.
