He'll head for a precautionary MRI to determine the extent of the damage. The Yankees can't afford to have his bat out of the lineup long, as the veteran slugger is hitting .297/.336/.570 with 19 homers and 53 RBI in a resurgent season.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

Beltran tied things up with an RBI single in the fifth inning before Starlin Castro put the Yankees ahead on a fielder’s choice in the eighth. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in four straight games and six out of his last seven as his resurgent campaign continues. He’s batting .290/.328/.573 with 19 home runs and 53 RBI through 70 games this season.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post expects the Yankees to extend a qualifying offer to Carlos Beltran when he reaches free agency this offseason.

The one-year qualifying offer would likely pay between $16.5-17 million. Of course, New York could change its mind if Beltran cools off and he could even be floated as trade bait if the Yankees become sellers at the trade deadline. But if anyone can afford to pay $17 million for a 40-year-old outfielder, it's the Yankees. The veteran has been the team's best hitter by far this year with 19 HR and 51 RBI through 68 games.

Carlos Beltran homered for the second consecutive game as the Yankees came from behind to beat the Twins 7-6 on Saturday afternoon in Minnesota.

His two-run blast off Kevin Jepsen tied the game in the eighth inning and the Yankees rallied for three more in the ninth to take it home. Beltran finished the afternoon 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now hitting .288/.321/.576 with 18 long balls and 48 RBI on the season.

The 39-year-old is now up to 17 homers through 64 games this season. He had 15 in 109 games in 2014 and 19 in 133 games in 2015. The unexpected resurgence has been a pleasant surprise for the Yankees with other veterans proving to be a disappointment.

Jun 3 - 11:04 PM

Carlos Beltran (back) went 1-for-3 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.
