Igarashi will not be activated Friday

Mets relief pitcher Ryota Igarashi, currently on the disabled list, will not be activated for the Mets' game against the Yankees on Friday night.

Instead, Igarashi will pitch again Friday night for Triple-A Buffalo.

Mets manager Jerry Manuel said before Friday's game that the organization felt Igarashi needed one more outing in the minors before coming off the DL.
