Jun 7 Beltran, who is already dealing with a bruised right knee, needed medical attention but remained in the Mets' 8-5 loss to LA on Tuesday after making a diving catch at the warning track in right center on J.D. Drew's third-inning shot, the NY Daily News reports.
Recommendation: The early diagnosis is bruised ribs on the left side and Beltran initially thought he pulled a rib-cage muscle - like Albert Pujols' strained oblique - but was hoping afterward that it's nothing more serious than a bruise. The Mets and Beltran will have a better read on the extent of his injury on Wednesday, but with Cliff Floyd possibly out until the weekend with a sprained left ankle, look for Beltran to try and play as long as the injury is not too severe.

So Um...does he really have to get injured every week...any idea if the guy is gonna play or should I just go ahead and start Chone in his place.
