Newsworthy Items

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York has a couple key updates:
  • Oliver Perez had an MRI on his knee after returning from San Diego as the team is hoping that will find a reason to put him on the DL peacefully
    • Rubin cited one Mets player saying his knee was "messes up"
  • Blanco received a cortisone shot in his neck for a herniated disc
    • Blanco said he started to feel better and was available on Friday, but the Mets didn't want to be caught short-handed catching so they brough up Santos

Carlos Beltran also played in an extended spring training game yesterday, getting six at bats, but did not run the bases or play the field. This supposedly "starts the clock" of 4-6 weeks until he'll be ready to return. This really doesn't tell us much because he has been hitting for a while in a cage and didn't run, but at least it's a small positive step. I'm keeping my expectation for his return after the All-Star Game.
