MILWAUKEE — Mets manager Terry Collins was being taken to a hospital on Sunday for precautionary tests after not feeling well before New York’s series finale against Milwaukee.
Assistant general manager John Ricco said Collins became ill about 45 minutes before the game in Milwaukee, and was treated by a Mets trainer and the Brewers’ team physician.
Ricco said he had no specifics on Collins’ symptoms. The skipper was to be taken to Froedert Hospital in nearby Wauwatosa.
“I was just with Terry. He was alert and fine, just wasn’t feeling well,” Ricco said. “So they’re going to have some tests run.”
Bench coach Dick Scott assumed Collins’ managing duties for Sunday’s game.
