Update on Beato..

The Mets placed Pedro Beato on the 60 day DL to make room for catcher Rob Johnson who was covering for Josh Thole, Thole was placed on the new seven day concussion DL but it's believed he will take longer to return.

Beato went down on March 7th with shoulder stiffness, he's still in Port St. Lucie and it's been reported that he isn't close to returning.  The season is already over 30 days old and the DL stint can go back 10 days into spring training, so really Beato will be eligible in early June if he's somehow ready to return.
