Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran To Play Tonight!
Carlos Beltran has declared himself ready to play and will be in tonights lineup when the Mets take on the Pirates at PNC Park.
Alex Cora will also be in tonight’s lineup and leadoff.
According to Adam Rubin,
Carlos Beltran said he lost at least five pounds as a result of what he labeled a stomach virus or food poisoning, but said he’s ready to return to the lineup.
“I feel good,” Beltran said. “Yesterday was the day I started feeling good. Today, finally, the symptoms stopped. They gave me some IV yesterday (at a doctor’s office) to recuperate all the fluid I lost.”
Beltran added: “I felt like I was poisoned by food or something. … I feel skinny. I feel very skinny. I don’t know if it’s 10 pounds (lost). Five for sure.”
Beltran said he was unconcerned about the flu, and wasn’t even aware an SNY associate producer was sent home with those symptoms.
“I didn’t have any fever,” Beltran said. “I didn’t have any headache. I just had a pain in my stomach and was going to the bathroom every 10 minutes.”
Well that’s a relief… Welcome back Carlos!
