Floyd lasts one at bat

Marty Noble at Mets.com, writes about Cliff Floyd and his re-re-re-reinjury:

His latest problem was diagnosed as an irritation of the left Achilles tendon. The prognosis was day-to-day.

Floyd was favoring the left leg, the leg that has been such a problem for him this season. His presence on the roster, something of an issue until the roster was submitted on Wednesday morning, now is a problem. The Mets were down to 24 men with seven innings and who knows how many games remaining.

Floyd aggravated the tendon strain he suffered while running the bases on Saturday in Game 3
of the NLDS against the Dodgers. On Thursday, he seemed to misstep as he approached first base after hitting a long foul down the left-field line. He limped conspicuously as he returned to the plate, where he spoke with manager Willie Randolph and trainer Ray Ramirez.
