Carlos Beltran

New York Mets


Carlos Beltran will not be in the lineup on Monday. Beltran told manager Terry Collins he felt "sore in a good way" a day after making his first Grapefruit League appearance and going 1-for-3 at DH.

The Mets concluded there was no sense pushing it by trying to play two days in a row. Beltran should be in the lineup Tuesday at DH.
