The Mets are calling Carlos Beltran’s injury a “right leg contusion” after X-rays were taken and came back negative.
They are classifying him as day to day.
Beltran left Sunday’s game after fouling a ball off the inside of his right shin in the second inning. He finished the at-bat, striking out against Tim Hudson, but then walked off the field gingerly and appeared to be in pain as he walked to the dugout.
After the game, Terry Collins said Beltran was dizzy and getting his leg iced in the trainers room, and that he will probably wake up in the morning with some pain and swelling.
He will be re-evaluated again on Tuesday before they make a determination on if he will play against the Brewers.
