NEW YORK (AP) - Ryan Church has been removed from the Mets'
depleted lineup because he's feeling nauseous, leaving New York
without yet another regular starter.
Fernando Tatis replaced Church in right field and the No. 5 spot in the batting order Sunday night against the Yankees.
Church, who was in the original lineup, looked miserable as he sat slumped in front of his locker with a hooded sweat shirt pulled over his head. He sipped on a tall drink that appeared to be ginger ale with ice.
Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Church had a stomachache and there was no reason to think his nausea had anything to do with the
post-concussion symptoms that hampered him for much of last season.
