Met's options while Beltran recovers

As Carlos Beltran recovers from his knee surgery, the New York Daily News breaks down a few options for the Mets to consider until Beltran returns (expected to be mid-May). 

What the Mets won't do is go out and spend a ton of money to cover for the absence.

Beltran's injury certainly doesn't change the Mets' needs - starting pitching, a starting catcher, more pop. So they could seek to fill those by moving quickly on C Bengie Molina and righty Joel Pineiro -- both of whom they have been negotiating with, and perhaps bringing back Carlos Delgado whom they are scouting in Puerto Rico.

Carlos Beltran's second opinion

A source familiar with the examination (and second opinion) of Carlos Beltran in Vail, Colo., told the Daily News the diagnosis was reassuring.

"With a player of this importance to us, we have no argument on our end to get another look," assistant GM John Ricco said. "He asked to have a second opinion, which is his right under the rules. As I said, with him, there's no reason for us to not be in favor of that. We'll get another opinion of it. Our doctors are fully on board with that."

According to the source, the doctor is expected to advise Beltran not to return to Mets until after the All-Star break.

Injury Updates

Tigers' Thames and Guillen from Tom Gage of The Detroit News :
Marcus Thames will rejoin the Tigers soon -- probably as soon as they face the next left-handed starting pitcher. Manager Jim Leyland said about Thames: "I would expect he will rejoin us soon. The reports are he's getting close." As for sore-shouldered Carlos Guillen, however, Leyland said: "It's going to be long ... "

Mets' Carlos Beltran from the New York Daily News :
Beltran said he lost at least five pounds as a result of what he labeled a stomach virus or food poisoning, but said he's ready to return to the lineup, "...Today, finally, the symptoms stopped. They gave me some IV yesterday (at a doctor's office) to recuperate all the fluid I lost."
In regards to his weight loss, Beltran said, "... I feel skinny. I feel very skinny. I don't know if it's 10 pounds (lost). Five for sure."

He said he didn't have a fever or a headach, just stomach pain and was, "going to the bathroom every 10 minutes."

Jose Reyes return according to the New York Times :
Mets' assistant GM John Ricco said that Reyes is scheduled to fly to New York on Thursday to have his right calf re-evaluated by team doctors.

That development dashed all hopes that Reyes would rejoin the team Friday in Washington, when he was eligible to come off the disabled list, and cast doubt on his availability for next week’s important series against the Phillies and Yankees.

“We’re being very conservative with him, obviously, because we need him for the long haul,” Ricco said before Wednesday’s game against the Pirates was rained out.

Evan Longoria update from the St. Petersburg Times :
Longoria's injured left hamstring felt much better Wednesday, and with some good MRI exam results, he's day to day with a possible return Friday against the Yankees. Executive VP Andrew Friedman said the Rays are "very optimistic" Longoria will avoid a disabled list stint and confident they'll have him back "relatively soon." "We just may save him until New York, give him two full days and move him onto the regular turf, see how that works, but he's fine," manager Joe Maddon ... "
