Beltran's Return Is Much Needed

Anthony Di Como at Mets.com, writes about Carlos Beltran and when he thinks he'll be back:

Injured center fielder Carlos Beltran said he is certain he will play on Tuesday, despite not feeling sharp as late as Sunday morning.

"[On] Tuesday, I'm going to be able to be in the lineup, for sure," Beltran said. "[Monday]'s a day off, so it's going to be better for me."

Beltran said he felt about 70 percent on Sunday morning, three days after bruising his right knee in a collision with Giants first baseman Rich Aurilia. He was still walking with a slight limp, but has been taking anti-inflammatories to reduce the pain.
