Second opinion agrees that Beltran has knee bruise

Jun 30, 2009, 12:48 PM EDT

Carlos Beltran traveled to Colorado yesterday to get a second opinion on his injured right knee and Adam Rubin the New York Daily News reports that Dr. Richard Steadman agreed with the Mets’ initial diagnosis of a bone bruise.

According to the newspaper Steadman has recommended that Beltran remain
on the disabled list through the All-Star break, which while longer
than his initial return timetable still qualifies as good news given the speculation that he could be headed for career-threatening microfracture surgery.

Beltran definitely isn’t out of the woods yet and surgery could
certainly emerge as an option down the road, but for now at least the
Mets can plan on having their stud center fielder back in the second
half.
