Player Update: Valentin Maks An Appearance

Anthony Di Como at, writes about Jose Valentin and him making his last show in the Mets club house before his rehab:

Valentin made what's likely to be his last trip to Shea in a while Tuesday, limping around the Mets clubhouse on a pair of crutches.

Though Valentin said the crutches aren't necessary for him to walk, his doctors recommended he use them to keep pressure off of his injured knee for the next week or two.

"I want to stay away from that as much as I can," Valentin said. "It's not sore, it's not swollen, it's just stiff because it just happened two days ago."

Valentin has been riding a stationary bike without his brace, but he hasn't yet been cleared to put any weight on the knee. He'll travel to the Mets Spring Training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Wednesday to get ready for his upcoming rehabilitation program.
