According to a tweet from Newsday's David Lennon (@dplennon), Carlos Beltran is expected to be in the lineup tonight in Milwaukee, two days after fouling a ball off his right shin and being removed from the game. However, his lineup spot is not finalized.

Beltran will test his injured shin/calf during batting practice before his spot in lineup is finalized, Lennon wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Here's the full lineup the Mets posted at Miller Park this afternoon:

Reyes-SS; Turner-3B; Beltran-RF; Murphy-1B; Pagan-CF; Bay-LF; Thole-C; Tejada-2B; Capuano-P
