Beltran Sits With Swollen Eye

May 14, 2011 3:07 PM EST

Mets center fielder Carlos Beltran was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Astros after waking up with a swollen right eye.

Beltran said he woke feeling "like with something on my eye."

Beltran said he alerted trainers, who gave him eye drops.

He will see a doctor and said it is painful on the top of the eye.

"Maybe I scratched it during the night," Beltran said. "It just burns. It's burning inside, on top of it."
