Weekly Injury Report

As of right now, the Mets are hurting, literally. Lets take a look at who is injured..

  • Our starting 1B Carlos Delgado, is on the mend after taking a trip back to New York City to get his hip examined. He should be back playing within the next 7-10 days.
  • Carlos Beltran, Damion Easley, Luis Castillo, Endy Chavez, Jose Valentin and Ben Johnson have not played in a game yet.
  • Ruben Gotay sprained his ankle while on his way to scoring the winning run in yesterdays game. He is scheduled for a CT scan tomorrow.
  • Ryan Church was also injured in yesterdays exhibition game against the Dodgers. He and Marlon Anderson collided while chasing a pop fly in shallow RF. Both Anderson and Church are expected to be ready to play within the week.

... the Mets expect most of these players to be ready on opening day. Lets just hope that injury's dont define what is to come from the Mets in the summer of 08.

Make sure you get there early, as a stiff breeze might come by and prevent these guys from signing autographs. However, also be sure to stay late, as there is bound to be more Mets coming in after today’s game.
