UPDATE: Baseball Prospectus’ Will Carroll is hearing that the exam was way worse than is being let on by the earlier reports, and offers the quote “No progress. None at all.”
8:16 A.M. Carlos Beltran was seen by his doctor in Vail, Colorado yesterday for a routine visit following arthroscopic knee surgery, which was performed on January 13 in an effort to clean out an arthritic area in his right knee. While he was said to be “making progress” he was still not
cleared to resume baseball activities, including running.
While Beltran and the Mets have officially said that there’s “no timetable,” he’s now a good two weeks past the time he had originally been expected to resume running following his surgery, and that schedule had him returning to the lineup sometime in May. Now it’s anyone’s guess as to when he’ll return.
