Pagan’s Test Results Show Dehydration

Angel Pagan‘s blood work showed nothing alarming for the center fielder after leaving Sunday’s game because of dehydration. Doctors orders are to drink plenty of water and sports drinks.

Angel was ready for the outfield on Tuesday and told this to the NY Times,

“Right now I feel good,” Pagan said before the Mets faced the Reds at Great American Ball Park. “Thank God the tests are negative. They didn’t find anything wrong with me, so I’m ready to go.”

He was held out of Tuesdays lineup for precautionary reasons by the Mets training staff and manager Terry Collins.

“He wanted to play,” Collins said. “But we’re just going to have him workout, and see how he feels after the workout, and he’ll be in there tomorrow.”

Little relief will come for today’s game in Cincinnati where temperatures are expected to approach triple digits.

    He should stop doing his handshake with Jose Reyes on hot days. That would relieve him from 20 minutes of strenuous activity and keep him fresh for the game.
