Carlos Beltran gave a bunch of interviews yesterday after working out for 2 1/2 hours rehabbing his knee. He is targeting the early-Mid May return to the Mets, and has been taking some swings in the cage, and throwing a bit. And it was also great to hear he is finally "pain-free".

Another good read re: the Mets comes from Adam Rubin as he looks at the composition of the 25 man roster, which you can compare to my post from March 9th (Battle for Last Roster Spot). His thoughts echo mine, with R Tejada joining the club as a SS until Reyes returns (which was not known at the time I wrote up my post). He also believes M Jacobs will grab the last spot on the bench.
He has both Niese winning the 5th spot, and F Nieve grabbing the long man in the bullpen. However, he says both Parnell and/or S Green's spot in the bullpen is not guaranteed, with Meija right now making the roster.
