Following their 6-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs, the New York Mets headed on a plane to the west coast to begin a series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Mid-flight, the team's charter was forced to make an emergency landing in Detroit for a medical issue with WOR radio play-by-play man Howie Rose. Rose reportedly felt ill on the plane but was feeling better afterwards. He's expected to rejoin the Mets when they return to New York next week.

After the emergency stop, the Mets' plane continued its trip to Los Angeles less than an hour later while the Rose remained behind for medical attention.

No other details have been made available as of now, though a number of Mets' beat writers shared their best wishes.
