Beltran Out With Knee Soreness, Duda Will Start In RF Tonight
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York is not reporting that right fielder Carlos Beltran will NOT be in tonight’s lineup when the Mets open the season against the Florida Marlins.
Carlos Beltran reported some soreness in his left knee this afternoon when he showed up for a team practice before tonight’s game. Manager Terry Collins decided to play it safe and will have Lucas Duda in right field instead of the ailing Beltran. Duda will bat sixth.
Why does this keep happening to us?
We must be jinxed or something, I swear.
Apparently, the soreness came as a result of a cruel hoax that I decided to play on all of you today in honor of the official day of pranks and leg-pulling.
