Angel Pagan initially deemed himself fine after leaving yesterday’s game in the fifth inning with dizziness, blaming things on dehydration, but he’s out of the lineup tonight and the Mets have sent him to undergo bloodwork to determine the cause.
Pagan described how he was feeling to Christina De Nicola of MLB.com:
I was in the outfield, and I felt like I wanted to sit down in the outfield, because I just felt like my body was getting very heavy. I just had to tell the trainer about it, because I wasn’t feeling that well.
Terry Collins revealed to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that Pagan “has been getting fatigued mid-game for a week,” which is definitely worrisome beyond simple dehydration. For now Jason Pridie is starting in center field against right-hander Mike Leake and the Reds.
