The Mets announced that Carlos Beltran underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee yesterday and will not be ready for Opening Day on April 5 versus the Marlins. Beltran is expected to resume baseball activities in 12 weeks.
"the Mets are claiming this was done without clearance and that the Mets are threatening to take some form of action. There is a potential issue out there."
Beltran's agent, Scott Boras, said the guarantee language in the center fielder's contract requires advance written permission only for elective operations.
"This was necessary surgery, necessary surgery to work," Boras told the Associated Press. (NYPOST)
It seems like it is great to be a Met.
This promises to make Sec202 unhappy as he planned to build his Fantasy Baseball "dynasty" around Beltran for the second straight year. Tough break Sec202.
