Carlos Beltran said Wednesday that he lost around 10 pounds over the winter.
Beltran joked that he "might try and steal some bases this year," though the Yankees would probably just be thrilled if he stays healthy while putting up similar numbers to 2015. After getting off to a slow start last year, he batted .276 with 19 homers and an .808 OPS. He's turning 39 in April. Feb 10 - 12:53 PM

Carlos Beltran said he'll likely retire after 2016 or play one more season.

"I don’t think there is any big decision I have to make — other than to play one more year or go home," said Beltran. "If I feel like I produce well to the point where I can make a good impact on a team, then I can play one more year." Beltran hit .292 after the All-Star break last year so it appears he has plenty left in the tank. The 38-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract.

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Sunday against the Orioles.

Beltran went from hitting .233/.301/.402 in his first year in New York to .276/.337/.471 at age 38 this season. The Bombers should be considering themselves fortunate they got so much out of him. They'll need him to keep it up in the postseason, particularly since he's counted on to help break up the lefties.

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

The veteran outfielder was unlikely to play in both contests, so it appears as though he'll sit out the first and return to the lineup later in the day. Jose Pirela will draw the start in right field and bat seventh for the Bombers.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Saturday against the Mets.

Beltran started the season slow, but he's hitting .303 with nine home runs and 26 RBI during the second half.

He cleared that out fast enough, smacking a three-run home run off reliever Aaron Sanchez to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead that would not be relinquished. He's got a nine-game hitting streak working while slashing .267/.328/.459 with 11 homers and 39 RBI for the season as a whole.
