What's going on with Carlos Beltran?

We know where he is: Port St. Lucie, Florida.
But that’s about all we know as far as Carlos Beltran’s progress from knee surgery. Reports a week ago suggested that he’d start running last Saturday. But those were erroneous and he still hasn’t been cleared to do anything resembling a baseball activity.
“There’s been no setback,” Mets spokesman Brian Horwitz said. “He’s just not at that stage. He’s still in a rehabilitation stage.”
It may sound encouraging that there’s been no setback. But you can’t have a setback without having some progress in the first place, and we don’t know that Beltran is any further along in his recovery than he was a month ago.
What we do know is that Beltran won’t rejoin the Mets for at least 4-6 weeks until after he starts running. A May return from the DL is looking less likely with each passing day.
