NEW YORK -- By game time Tuesday, the Mets probably will have a better idea of how long they will be without Ryan Church and Marlon Anderson. Church, who suffered a concussion May 20, is to be examined by a neurologist, and Anderson, assigned to the disabled list because of a strain of his left hamstring, is to have his leg examined by magnetic resonance imaging.

Church pinch-hit in the Mets' 7-3 loss to the Marlins on Monday, though he still experienced too much dizziness to play the outfield. The severe headache he endure on the long flight from Denver to New York on Sunday night passed. The Mets' next flight is to the West Coast on Sunday.

Anderson is hopeful that his injury is not severe. The Mets' primary left-handed pinch-hitter can walk, and his leg is not swollen.
