According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, Carlos Beltran was scratched from Saturday’s lineup against the Phillies due to tendinitis in his left knee.
The good news? This isn’t the knee that required surgery in January. That was the right one. The bad news? Mets manager Jerry Manuel thinks that Beltran has compensated with the left knee, leading to the tendinitis.
Oh boy. Manuel is no doctor, but it sounds like a reasonable enough conclusion to make. This will probably be a topic of discussion in the coming days, but if Beltran wants to make the most of his contract year in 2011, he should seriously consider a move to right field, whether he survives the offseason with the Mets or not.
