NEW YORK (AP) - Carlos Beltran is going on the disabled list, an
enormous blow to a struggling New York Mets team already decimated
by key injuries.

The All-Star center fielder was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday because of a bone bruise on his right knee - the same injury that sidelined him for a couple of games in late May. An MRI exam Monday showed the bruise has gotten worse.

Beltran could be out longer than 15 days, too. Asked if the Mets might wait until after the All-Star break to activate him, general manager Omar Minaya said that was something the team would have to consider.

The Mets already are missing star shortstop Jose Reyes (hamstring) and slugging first baseman Carlos Delgado (hip). Neither is expected back soon.
