Mets activate Mark Canha from COVID-19 injured list, designate Mark Reynolds for assignment

The New York Mets made a few roster moves prior to Wednesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants.

Outfielder Mark Canha was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list and infielder Mark Reynolds was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster.

Right-handed pitcher Jake Reed, who began the season on the injured list with an oblique strain, was also reinstated and optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

Canha was one of two players that tested positive for COVID-19 on April 15. Outfielder Brandon Nimmo was the other and he was activated prior to Tuesday’s doubleheader. Canha is off to a pretty solid start in his first season with the Mets. He’s hitting .381/.500/.381 over his first 26 plate appearances.

Reynolds was signed to a minor league deal in the offseason and had his contract selected when Nimmo and Canha went on the IL.
