Mets right fielder Carlos Beltran isn’t going to let a minor case of pink eye derail his impressive start.
According to Steve Popper of the Bergen Record, the 34-year-old is back in the Mets’ lineup for Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Astros.
Beltran sat out of Saturday’s game because of an infection in his right eye that was causing blurred vision and eye socket pressure. He was given medication, which has apparently done the trick.
Beltran has posted a .324/.435/.865 batting line this month and boasts eight home runs and 24 RBI in 146 plate appearances this year. He registered his first career three-homer game on Wednesday evening in a win over the Rockies.
