The wonkiness of Carlos Beltran‘s knee has been cause for concern. Has he simply not healed properly from last year’s surgery? Was it just never meant to be right again? Nope, those questions aren’t operative. Because it’s his other knee that is causing him problems.
Seems that, though the surgery was on his right knee, Beltran is overcompensating by favoring his left knee, which has led to tendinitis that is going to keep him shelved for four or five days.
Beltran and the Mets waxed optimistic yesterday and neither think this will impact his start to the season. But it is kinda hard to figure how, if one is sore in the first week of March, one won’t be sore throughout the season.
