New York Mets’ Carlos Beltran Headed To The DL…

According to WFAN in New York, the New York Mets will place OF Carlos Beltran on the 15 Day DL. Beltran went for a MRI today on his right knee and apparently, there was something serious enough to warrant a DL stint for Beltran. The Mets handling of injuries the last two years have been comical at best, so the explanation of why Beltran is going to the DL should be one for the ages.

First it was Carlos Delgado, then it was Jose Reyes, and now it is Carlos Beltran. The Mets offense is built around four players. The other is David Wright. When three of those four players go down, it’s almost impossible to win at the major league level.

Look at the lineup the Mets are rolling out tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s a joke…

  1. Alex Cora
  2. Daniel Murphy
  3. David Wright
  4. Fernando Tatis
  5. Ryan Church
  6. Omir Santos
  7. Jeremy Reed
  8. Luis Castillo
  9. Tim Redding

The Mets will recall Fernando Martinez to replace Beltran on the roster.
