Initial timetables for Carlos Beltran’s recovery from knee surgery had him back in the Mets’ lineup by early May, but Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the All-Star center fielder is still “not close to returning” and “was fitted for a custom knee brace” after meeting with doctors in Colorado last week.
Beltran was not cleared to resume running following the post-surgery exam and Martino notes that the Mets now seem unsure when he’ll “take that important step.” At this point any timetables are out the window.
In fact, because of the lack of progress he’s made recently, Martino speculates that Beltran returning by June would now actually be “optimistic” and adds that “it’s not clear whether Beltran is considering further surgery that could threaten his season.”
In other words, yuck.
