Injury Updates

By / August 16, 2009 / Injuries

I feel like I do these at least once a week. It is so sad.

Well there is some news on the Carlos Beltran front. He worked out back-to-back days and said he was pain free.

Here’s what he told the media:

I took balls going back, to the sides, coming forward. I didn’t feel anything [pain] in what I did out there.

An MRI is scheduled for the end of the month which will determine whether he can come back or not.

I really do not understand why we are still talking about this. This is why I have to criticize the Mets and how they handle their injuries.

The Mets are not making it to the playoffs. It is time to come to that realization. So why force Beltran to come back. Just shut him down for the season and be done with it.

There is no point in having him, Jose Reyes or Carlos Delgado back in the line-up at this point in the year.

I want Beltran to just rest and do what he needs to do for next year. That is if he does not have the microfracture surgery. The same thing for Reyes. I would not worry about Delgado because I do not see the Mets bringing him back next year anyway.

Billy Wagner did not come back to the Mets yesterday as anticipated. According to the New York Post, a Mets spokesperson said Wagner was helping his family get settled in a new home in Virginia.

He will be activated during this week. It is not known on what day.

Jerry Manuel said when he does come back, he will still be on a “regimented schedule”. Obviously!

You’re not the only who does an injury update every week. It seems as if I give out an Injured Player of The Week award on my site way too often as well!

I agree with you on resting Beltran. As you say, Delgado is not coming back. Also, Reyes and Beltran are not going to be traded. The Mets might as well showcase some players that they might be able to use as bargaining chips in potential trades. If some of these players do well in September, they might get the Mets something in return for 2010.

Reyes and Beltran will definitely be playing every day next season. Some of the players playing now would be relegated to the bench if they’re still with the team in 2010. Just play these kids, hope they can do well and let those players that never seem to recover from being part of the MASH unit (Mets Always Stay Hurt) take the extra time off so they can be back at full strength come spring training.
