Mets’ Beltran likely out till after All-Star break

Mets center fielder Carlos Beltran, still progressing slowly from offseason knee surgery, might not be ready to return to the lineup until mid-July.

General manager Omar Minaya told the New York Daily News that Beltran still hasn’t been cleared to resume "full baseball activities" and will need 4-6 weeks from the point when he is cleared to do so until the time he can make his 2010 Mets debut.

Beltran is doing some running and taking some swings but isn’t doing any sprinting.

Beltran hit .325 with 10 homers and 48 RBIs last season, but he was limited to 81 games.
