Carlos Beltran suspects pinkeye (conjunctivitis) is the cause of the slightly blurry vision and pressure from the top of his right eye. The right fielder, who was scratched from Saturday's lineup, is unsure when he will return to game action.

Trainers took images of Beltran's right eye and sent it to team doctors for review. He was given eye drops. The team officially is only labeling it right eye inflammation.

"They say it could be conjunctivitis," Beltran said. "They gave me some antibiotics today. It's better, but I still feel a little blurry. They got me some eye drops and they want me to take those tonight, and hopefully tomorrow I'll feel better. ... I feel better than how I came here early, but I still need to get better in order for me to play."
