Carlos Beltran sits for the second straight day with a sore knee

Carlos Beltran sat out of the Mets game yesterday due to soreness in his knee and is out once again today, presumably for the same reason.

Beltran has yet to play his new position — right field — and the plan has been for him to DH for a week or so before tacking the outfield.  This knee soreness — even if Beltran describes it as sore “in a good way” — is pushing that plan back a bit.  And frankly, it has to be a bit worrisome if general workouts and a day at DH are keeping him on the pine.
