Cameron was activated from the 15-day disabled list by San Diego on Sunday and the center fielder started against the New York Mets. Cameron had been sidelined with a strained left oblique and missed the Padres' first 17 games. He batted a career-high .273 with 12 homers and 39 RBIs in 76 games for the Mets last season.
Cameron, who has been on the disabled list since March 31 with a strained left oblique muscle, is taking live batting practice. The San Diego center fielder told the Padres' Web site that he didn't taking all-out hacks at the ball in Monday's hitting session, in which he drove one ball to the wall, but his rehab work is progressing enough that he could return to action soon.
As anticipated, the New York Mets traded Cameron to San Diego Friday, in exchange for Xavier Nady. The long-rumored deal went down after Cameron had been tested to assure the Padres that his vision wasn't negatively affected by his collision with teammate Carlos Beltran in August. In 76 games last season, Cameron batted .273 with 12 home runs and 39 RBIs.
In an interview Saturday, Cameron discussed his collision with Carlos Beltran that resulted in Cameron's facial surgery. He expects to miss the remainder of the season. "I don't remember too much," Cameron said. "I was out of it for a minute. I couldn't breathe because I had blood coming out of my nose and my mouth at the same time. That was my main concern. Breathing, breathing. After that, I figured something was wrong because I couldn't really function that well."
Cameron underwent successful facial surgery Friday night to repair his broken nose and fractured cheekbones, suffered in an outfield collision with Carlos Beltran on Thursday. Cameron is expected to remain at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla for at least a couple of days in order to recover from the surgery.
Cameron will now be sidelined for the remainder of the season after a violent collision with teammate Carlos Beltran during Thursday's game against the San Diego Padres. The outfielder was carted off the field on a stretcher and taken to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a broken nose, multiple fractures of both cheekbones and a slight concussion. He will undergo surgery over the weekend.
Cameron is optimistic that he could return to the Mets' lineup as early as Tuesday after having fluid drained from his ailing right quadriceps. The outfielder, who also has a sore left ring finger, has not played since June 12 because of the ailments. He continues to be listed as day-to-day. Victor Diaz will handle the right-field duties until Cameron is back in action.
Out of action since last Sunday, Cameron isn't certain to play in the Friday night opener of the Mets' weekend series in Seattle. While he has taken off the splint he wore on his left ring finger, which he dislocated on Sunday, his right leg remains stiff and swollen, the side effects of a healing quadriceps strain.
Cameron dislocated his left ring finger on Sunday, and the Mets' outfielder has been bothered by a quadriceps injury as well. He sat out Tuesday's 5-0 loss to Oakland, and it's possible he may be out until Friday to rest his injuries.
Cameron has wrapped up his minor league rehab assignment and been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the New York Mets. The outfielder, who has been sidelined with tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist, will make his 2005 season debut in Thursday's meeting with the Philadelphia Phillies. Reliever Royce Ring was optioned to the minor leagues to open a spot on the roster for Cameron.
Cameron is slated to serve as the Mets' everyday right fielder, despite the solid play of Victor Diaz during his absence. Cameron batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
Cameron has reported no problems during his minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Port St. Lucie, so the Mets plan to promote him to Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday. The outfielder, who has been sidelined all season with tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist, will be activated from the 15-day disabled list as early as this weekend, barring any setbacks. Cameron batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
Victor Diaz has filled the void in right field during Cameron's absence, and the Mets would like to continue to get him regular at-bats. Cameron should see the majority of the time in right, but Diaz could get a start or two each week as well.
Cameron has resumed traveling with the New York Mets, as he continues in his recovery from tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist. The veteran outfielder hopes to resume hitting off a tee within the next several days, but admitted that it likely will be at least a couple more weeks before he returns to the Mets' lineup.
Victor Diaz will get the majority of the starts in Cameron's absence, with Eric Valent seeing some time as well. Cameron batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
The Mets placed Cameron on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with tendinitis in his left wrist. Cameron had surgery in December to repair damaged cartilage in the same wrist, and had tried hitting off a tee earlier in the week, however, the Mets' front office felt that it would be best if they let him rest. The team recalled Aaron Heilman from Triple-A Norfolk to take Cameron's spot on the active roster.
When Cameron recovers, he should retain his starting spot in right field.
Cameron did some hitting off a tee on Wednesday, but was absent from the Mets' lineup for the second consecutive game. The outfielder, who is battling tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist, received a cortisone shot last weekend to help with the discomfort, but has yet to feel comfortable to take the field with the team. He is not expected to play on Thursday and continues to be listed as day-to-day.
Both Cameron and manager Willie Randolph indicated that the outfielder won't return to action until the wrist is at or close to 100 percent. Until that time, Victor Diaz and Eric Valent are expected to split time in right field for New York. Cameron batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
Cameron will be a game-time decision for Monday's season opener against the Cincinnati Reds. The Mets' outfielder received a cortisone shot on Saturday to help with the tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist and was listed as day-to-day. If he is unable to go, Eric Valent will get the nod for the Mets.
The tendinitis is reportedly unrelated to the surgery he had on this same wrist back in December, but the Mets might decide to hold Cameron out for a couple of days as a precautionary measure. To make room for free-agent acquisition Carlos Beltran, Cameron will move from center field to right this season. He batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
The New York Mets decided to give Cameron the day off on Monday, starting Eric Valent in right field in his stead. The veteran outfielder received a cortisone shot on Saturday to help with the tendinitis in his surgically repaired left wrist and continues to be listed as day-to-day. The tendinitis is reportedly unrelated to the surgery he had on this same wrist back in December.
Cameron should make his season debut within the next few days. He batted .231 with 30 home runs, 76 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 140 games in 2004.
