Beltran Likely to Return Sometime Between Early May and Early June

According to the New York Post, as reported from an interview by WFAN's Craig Carton with Omar Minaya, it seems as though the earliest the Mets can expect Carlos Beltran back will be May 8th.  Minaya said in his interview that Beltran cannot start running until April 10th, and that once he starts running, "it could be somewhere between 4, 6 to 8 weeks, in that range." That would put his return as early as May 8th but as late as possibly early June.

Minaya seems confident in the team's ability to perform without Beltran, saying, "I feel that with Gary Mathews and with Pagan we're covered there and we don't have to rush Carlos back...We want to get Carlos back but we don't want to feel like we have to rush him."

I'm in agreement not to rush Beltran, although with today's showings I'm much, much, more concerned with this team than I was yesterday.  It's hard to be a fan and think objectively when you saw what went on this afternoon.  Tough day...
