Carlos Beltran underwent surgery Tuesday to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his right elbow.
Beltran is six weeks away from hitting and throwing and 12 weeks away from playing in a game, so he should be ready for spring training. The 37-year-old attempted to play through the pain this season, but ended up with a career-low .703 OPS. Now that the issue has been taken care of, he'll make for a solid bounceback candidate in 2015. Sep 30 - 2:36 PM
