NEW YORK -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins has been released from a Milwaukee hospital and is headed back to New York on Monday. Collins plans to manage Tuesday's homestand opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Collins had felt ill before Sunday's game against the Brewers and was transported from Miller Park to Froedtert Hospital. He was kept overnight for testing and observation.
Bench coach Dick Scott managed Sunday's 5-3 loss in Collins' absence, although Collins watched the game on television.
The Mets issued a statement on Monday that read: "Mets manager Terry Collins was seen by Dr. Brian-Fred Fitzsimmons at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee after checking into the hospital on Sunday. Collins had not been feeling well prior to the Mets game with the Brewers. All tests came back negative and Collins has been cleared by Dr. Fitzsimmons in consultation with Mets medical staff to fly home to New York. Collins will be in uniform tomorrow at Citi Field when the Mets begin an eight-game homestand against the Pirates."
Collins, 67, is the oldest manager in Major League Baseball.
