Injury Updates: Beato Solid In Rehab, Bay and Thole To Begin Baseball Activities
Last night, reliever Pedro Beato allowed one hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning. It was his second rehab appearance as he looks to return from a strained right rotator cuff that sidelined him in spring training. So far Beato has pitched two hitless innings since he began pitching in rehab games last week.
He is eligible to return to the team in five days, but there’s a good chance the Mets will assign him to Triple-A Buffalo for more seasoning as was the original plan had he not gotten hurt.
Meanwhile, Jason Bay and Josh Thole have arrived in Port St. Lucie and are set to begin baseball activities.
Bay will begin taking batting practice this morning and could soon play in a few minor league rehab games as a designated hitter as soon as this weekend.
Thole is a little further behind and is expected to work on some light drills and batting practice this week. No word yet on when he will begin playing in any rehab games.
