Mets manager Terry Collins hospitalized before loss to Brewers

BY foxsports • June 12, 2016

New York Mets manager Terry Collins was taken to a local hospital before Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers and will remain overnight for observation. Collins was feeling sick and was evaluated by a team trainer and a Brewers doctor before going to the hospital for precautionary tests, but no specifics were disclosed.

"We care about the manager. That was on everybody's mind because it was so close to the beginning of the game," said bench coach Dick Scott, who took over managerial duties. He broke the news to the team in a meeting about 30 minutes before the first pitch.

"I'm sure that we'll move on, but, first and foremost, all our concerns are with Terry right now," Scott said.

Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said there wasn't a high level of concern over Collins' condition, and that he expects him to be released on Monday.

"They were watching the game. I know that," Ricco said. "He was probably a bit agitated knowing Terry. But, other than that, he was feeling fine."

The Mets fell behind 5-0 thanks to committing three errors in the first five innings, and saw their comeback attempt fall short before suffering the 5-3 loss.
