The Mets defeated the Dodgers 1-0 in Grapefruit play yesterday, but suffered a setback in the process.
Right fielder Ryan Church collided with Marlon Anderson and suffered a Grade 2 concussion. He’ll be back on the team when the symptoms are gone, and the Mets are projecting three weeks.
Carlos Delgado, meanwhile, went back to New York to get an MRI on his right hip, which made him sit a slew of games late last season. With Shawn Green retiring, there’s no real back-up plan for the Mets at first base.
