Beltran on his butt for four more games

Postby Simulacrum » Thu May 26, 2005 5:59 pm

May 26 The New York Times' Lee Jenkins reports New York Mets OF Carlos Beltran (quadriceps) is publicly saying he may miss the four-game series against the Florida Marlins May 27-30. "I want to play in Miami, but I've got to be smart," Beltran said. "This is something that will take more time. I feel that if I go try to play, it will get worse."

Good lord. Weird, he came in as a pinch hitter in yesterday's game though :-?

One can only hope the time off is enough to make him 90-100%.

That is a bit odd after his PH yesterday.

They shouldn't have pinch hit him, they could have put him on the retroactive 15 day DL and brought Diaz up to play instead of Eric Valent.

Did you see the at bat?

He could barely walk. His right leg was all stiff. There is no way he's playing CF any time soon, especially this weekend.

I would not count on Beltran returning to his 30-40 steal days after this news. You'll probably have to settle for 10.

I have no idea what to do with this guy. I"m in a keeper league, and i don't really want to trade a guy with this much talent, but if he's not running anymore, he's obviously not as valuable as he once was. The Mets might as well DL him so he can join Harden, Escobar, Lyon, and Affeldt on my bench.

I wish they didn't pinch hit him last night so he could have been DLed retroactive to May 21. Clearly he is not ready to play after seeing him last night. We need room to bring up Diaz because the platoon of Woodward/Valent/Anderson isn't going to cut it, especially Valent.
