Mets Release A Statement From Beltran
“I felt a little discomfort in my left knee last week. I spoke to the doctors today. They advised me to just give it a rest for a couple of days. I can hit and do everything, but back off the running part of it. I feel fine. I think I just overcompensated from all the work I did on the other knee and I just need to give it a little break.” – Carlos Beltran via Mets Media Relations Dept.
Earlier today, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, had plenty of quotes from Carlos Beltran, Terry Collins and Sandy Alderson on why the team felt it neccesary to shut down Carlos Beltran for 4-5 days. You can read the full context and quotes on thier site, here is just a small sampling.
“I started feeling it when I first started running here, the first couple days of spring training. I felt like I was compensating, and it got worse, worse, worse, to the point where now I have to make sure it doesn’t get worse than that. My goal right now, I know spring training is important to get the timing and get a lot of things going on, but for me, it’s more important to be ready for the season. I want to be ready for the season.”
“He’s got some tendinitis in his left knee, which was the non-surgery knee. It may have come from overcompensating for the problem with the right knee. He’s going to get some anti-inflammatories, and his activity will be limited over the next four or five days, but they want to allow the anti-inflammatories to work and kind of nail this problem before it becomes more problematic.”
“His legs are stiff right now, and he’s got a little tendinitis in his other knee, his left knee. So I said, ‘Look, let’s take the two days now. It beats two weeks if we try to stretch it. We’ve got a lot of time. He’s swinging the bat great. He’s had good BPs. He’s doing a lot of work in the cage, which I know that’s what’s causing it.”
