Carlos Beltran expected to make an early return to the Mets…….

New York Mets' Carlos Beltran could be back in the outfield as early as May.

You gotta love this guy…..The end of last season when every one of the Mets starters were out…Beltran just kept going….

He too had an injury ..but played on like a solider…then when the winter came he went to doctor…got diagnosed….and went straight in for surgery…causing the Mets to have a very bad day…when the Manager forgot that Beltran told him he was going to have the procedure and the Mets embarrassed themselves for getting pissed that Beltran was taking care of himself and not relying on the ‘wait and see’ attitude from the Mets that had players playing hurt last year…….

Most of the Mets had just started their workday when Carlos Beltran emerged from the clubhouse gym, unhooking a heart-rate monitor from around his midsection. Beltran, his shirt drenched with sweat, had just finished a grueling two-hour, 40-minute workout, part of his rehab from surgery on his right knee.

While his teammates were outside taking batting practice before a bus trip to Jupiter for Thursday night’s game against the Marlins, Beltran stood by his locker talking about the progress his knee has made – enough to make him smile several times during the conversation. The knee was wrapped after the workout, but the “pinch” he felt there is gone after his winter operation and his leg feels strong.

“Every day I’m improving,” Beltran said. “I don’t feel the same way I did last year. At the same time, it’s hard for me to say when I’m going to be ready. Doing this is no problem, but the big test will be when I start doing baseball activities every day, when I start running, catching fly balls and standing out there on my feet for a full day. I’m looking forward to that.”

Beltran, who hit .325 with 10 home runs and 48 RBI in 81 games last season, will start testing his knee by running “sometime in April,” he said. Full baseball activities should start in mid-April, he said, meaning he likely won’t return to the Mets until early May at the earliest.

“Running, I am looking forward to that,” Beltran said. “That will really let me know where I am. Once I test it, hopefully to God everything goes well and I can say I need this (amount of) time to get ready for baseball games and go from that.

“When I start to do baseball activity, I’m not going to be far behind. I want to be right there.”
