Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran hasn’t played in a Grapefruit League game since Sunday, when he served as the club’s designated hitter against the Red Sox. The 33-year-old is battling left knee tendinitis and is not expected to resume playing in live games for another couple of days.
But he is staying active.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Beltran rode a stationary bike Thursday in Mets camp and also worked out his legs in a physical therapy pool. He played catch and took some swings in a cage Wednesday with no issues.
As of now, Beltran is on track for the start of the regular season. That will change quickly, however, if he does not begin seeing regular Grapefruit League at-bats by early next week. Opening Day looms. Sorta.
