Mets activated four..

After dropping four players from the 40 man roster the Mets once again have a full roster, as they have activated four players from the 60 day disabled list. 

Johan Santana, Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis and Taylor Buchholz were activated from the disabled list.  I expected three of them to be back but Buchholz is a bit of a surprise.  After experiencing shoulder fatigue, Taylor struggled with depression and lost the rest of the year.

The fourth year pro is arbitration eligible and made 600K last season.  When he's healthy he's a solid reliever and would be a low risk candidate for the pen.  I wasn't sure if the Mets would bring him back after losing an entire year but it looks like his chances are good since they activated him.

The Mets will lose seven players to free agency once the World Series is over, which will free up roster spots for rule five candidates.
