MILWAUKEE – Mets manager Terry Collins is staying overnight in a hospital in Milwaukee after falling ill and missing New York’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Assistant general manager John Ricco said Collins became sick about 45 minutes before Sunday’s game. He had no specifics on Collins’ symptoms.
Collins was accompanied by trainer Ray Ramirez to Froedtert Hospital in nearby Wauwatosa.
Ricco says there wasn’t a high level of concern about Collins’ condition, adding that Collins could be released Monday, when the Mets have an off day.
Collins watched the 5-3 loss to Milwaukee from the hospital.
Bench coach Dick Scott assumed Collins’ managing duties.
