NEW YORK (AP) _ Pitcher Mark Corey had further tests by the New York Mets’ doctor on Thursday, a few hours after being released from a hospital for treatment of a seizure not far from Shea Stadium.

Corey was taken to New York Medical Center after having the seizure at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said. The 27-year-old reliever was stricken on a Queens corner, just outside his hotel, about an hour after New York’s 6-3 loss to Atlanta.

By 4 a.m., Corey had been released, Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said. Police said they did not know what caused the seizure. Horwitz said Corey was being examined by one of the Mets’ team doctors, but there was no immediate update on his condition.

Corey is 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in five games for the Mets this season. He was 2-1 with six saves and a 1.17 ERA at Triple-A Norfolk.

The right-hander was brought up from Norfolk for his second stint with the Mets this year on June 13 when pitcher Grant Roberts was placed on the disabled list.

Corey, listed at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, made his major league debut last Oct. 2 with the Mets.
