The Mets (25-20, first in NL East) are back at it against the Arizona Diamondbacks (19-35, fifth in NL West) on Monday at 9:40 p.m. in Arizona on SNY.

Mets Notes

The Mets roster is getting juiced up on Monday, with Pete Alonso, Kevin Pillar and Seth Lugo returning to the roster after being activated. The team is looking to get into the groove of things after two of three games this weekend were rained out in New York.

The Mets get to face a reeling Diamondbacks team that was riding a 13-game losing streak before beating the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, 9-2.
