Carlos Beltran said his left quad isn’t full strength, but good enough for him to play. But, how good he’s not sure.
“It’s all right,’’ Beltran said. “It’s the same.’’
Which means he can’t let out the throttle. Speed is a big part of Beltran’s game, but running straight in the outfield with little change of direction is different than running with short bursts and the quick starts and stops he would have on the bases.
How aggressive will he be?
“It all depends on how I feel,’’ Beltran said. “If I feel tight, I won’t run. If I feel like I can run I will.’’
