The Mets have shut down Ryan Church for a few days. When he gets back to New York he’ll be re-examined by a neurologist. Church has been talking to a doctor from the Hospital of Special Surgery by phone, but the Mets said he has not, and will not, be re-examined while the team is in California.
Church said he could not pinch-hit last night because he felt pressure, which he described as “a heartbeat in my head.”
Church will not be available in any capacity.
