Injury prone

Marty Noble and Chris Girandola at writes about Cliff Floyd and the plagued season he is having:

Cliff Floyd has been back with the Mets less than a week, and already things don't look promising.

After returning from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday and playing against the Astros on Saturday and Sunday, he says his left Achilles has flared up again.

"After the season ends, I'll probably have to have surgery if I want to play next season," Floyd said on Tuesday before the game against the Braves was rained out.

Floyd had sustained injuries to his right Achilles several times in his career, most notably in 1999, with the Marlins, when he had a slight tear. In 2003, Floyd had surgery to remove bone spurs from the tendon.
