Originally posted on Mets Fever  |  Last updated 3/6/12
Late in yesterday's exhibition game with the St. Louis Cardinals, Pedro Beato experienced stiffness in his throwing shoulder. Beato was immediately removed from the game by Terry Collins and stated after the game that he doesn't believe it is something serious. This early in the year, and the fact that it is his shoulder rather than his elbow should see the Mets exercise some additional caution as Beato figures to be in the running to round out the bullpen. No word at this point as to whether or not Beato will have an MRI or if he will be shut down for any length of time.

Caution appears to be the name of the game when it comes to David Wright as well. Spooked by the abdominal injury to Scott Hairston, the Mets originally stated that they intended to hold Wright out until at least the third game of the season, which would have been tomorrow. Following today's game, it was revealed that Wright will not see game action until at least some time next week, as the team does not want to tempt fate. Wright is a professional, so I don't foresee him losing anything in the field as a result of the down time, however should this break in action go much further you'd have to be concerned if he will get the number of at-bats necessary to have his swing rhythm figured out by opening day.

Should more information become available on either front, you can be sure to find it here soon after...
