Juan Uribe will travel to Kansas City, status will be decided Monday
The Mets will travel to Kansas City and workout at Kauffman Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
With the team will go Juan Uribe, who continues to suffer from a chest contusion he sustained during their series against the Yankees in mid-September.
He only has one at-bat since, which came five days after the injury in Cincinnati. He has not played since.
But he has ramped up his workouts and baseball activities over the last couple of weeks, and on Friday and Saturday took batting practice, took ground balls at second and third base, and also threw to bases, although he appeared to throw gingerly during his workouts.
On Saturday, manager Terry Collins said Uribe will travel to Kansas City with the team, and his status for the World Series will be determined on Monday.
Collins said that no matter what, he wants Uribe with the team for spiritual purposes throughout the World Series.
Uribe hit .219/.301/.430 with nine doubles, six home runs and 20 RBI in 44 games for the Mets upon being acquired from the Braves.
