The Mets have activated Ronny Cedeno from the disabled list, and he will take over the everyday duties at shortstop while Ruben Tejada is out. He will be in the Mets' lineup as they begin a three-game series in Miami this evening.

The 29-year-old infielder had only 16 plate appearances this season before he was placed on the DL on April 23. Last year with the Pirates, Cedeno hit .249/.297/.339, and his career numbers are very similar. There's no doubt that he will not be able to match Tejada's offensive production. In fact, he's probably not going to be able to match the production of Justin Turner at the plate. Unlike Turner, however, he should be able to handle playing shortstop.

Vinny Rottino has been demoted to Buffalo to make room on the team's 25-man roster for Cedeno. Rottino didn't have a hit in a handful of plate appearances in his brief time with the Mets, but he was hitting .316/.360/.442 in Buffalo.
