New York Mets manager Terry Collins was medically cleared and released from Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee today. He is expected to manage Tuesday night's series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates in New York. Collins originally fell ill on Sunday before the Mets' game against the Brewers.
Collins was taken to the Milwaukee hospital, accompanied by Mets medical trainer Ray Ramirez, for further examination, and stayed overnight as a precautionary measure. In Collins' absence, the Mets suffered a 5-3 defeat. Bench coach Dick Scott filled in for Collins during the game, and it was his first full game in the role. He did manage the majority of the Mets' May 29 loss to the Dodgers, though, a game made famous for the questionable ejections of Noah Syndergaard and Collins.
Collins's team enters the midweek series against Pittsburgh with a 34-28 record, 4.5 games behind the Washington Nationals for first place in the NL East. The Pirates sail into Queens riding a five-game losing streak, the first of which took place on June 9, when the Mets beat the Pirates in extra innings.
