Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran has been recovering from knee surgery all season and, according to MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo, isn’t nearly done.
Beltran has yet to resume full baseball activities and Mets general manager Omar Minaya said Thursday that the outfielder will need between six-to-eight weeks of rehab once he’s cleared to do so. In other words, he still has a long, long road ahead. DiComo, in fact, suspects that he won’t be back before the mid-July All-Star break.
Luckily, backup outfielder Angel Pagan has filled in gracefully in center field for the Mets, who are 24-23 and right in the thick of things in the National League East. Pagan is batting .300 with three home runs, 20 RBI and eight stolen bases in 46 games this year.
