The New York Mets activated C John Buck from the paternity list Tuesday, Aug. 20. The team also signed free-agent Ps Mitch Talbot (Marlins) and Daryl Thompson (Twins) to minor league deals.
Fantasy Tip: Buck returns to a different setup behind him at catcher. Travis d'Arnaud is now in the majors for good, so the two will split time for the rest of the season. d'Arnaud is the catcher of the future, so they'll try to get a good look at him. Buck is no longer a must-own in single-catcher leagues.
