Beltran Still Not Cleared to Start Rehab

Flushing Baseball DailyContributor IJune 3, 2016

Unfortunately, according to Mike Puma of the NY Post, the Mets center fielder still has not been cleared to even start running yet and is waiting down in Port St. Lucie for the word to begin. The team said that there has been no setbacks on his right knee that underwent surgery back on January 13.

Thoughts: It seems like the Mets are just taking their time with Beltran rather than risk a setback. He really should start his rehab soon no matter how conservative they take it. Once he gets started it is expected to take 6-8 weeks to get him back to Flushing. So at this point we’re looking at the first week in June.
