Carlos Beltran's 11th game of his rehab assignment went a lot like the others. Nine innings in the field, two more hits, and his knee feels stronger. Beltran has now had seven multiple hit games in his 11 games of rehab.

Beltran went 2-4 again last night with a double, a walk and a run scored, as the Mets beat the Charloett Stone Crabs 8-5.

After the game Beltran said, "the knee is getting stronger and stronger. Everyday, I feel better and see the ball deeper,"

The Mets expect him to return immediately after the All-Star break when they play the San Francisco Giants on July 15th.

Oliver Perez also made his second rehab start last night. He went 5.2 inning, gave up two runs on two hits, walked three batters and struck out seven. He got the win, improving his record to 1-1 with a 4.63 ERA.

The Mets top prospect Wilmer Flores had a huge day at the plate in that game. He went 4-5 with a double, two RBI, and two runs scored. He is now hitting .431 in 13 games with a home run and eight RBI at the single-A level.
