Aug 31 - 3:32 PM

Carlos Beltran went 0-for-3 in the blowout loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.

The Astros are hoping Beltran has one epic playoff run left in him, but he's shown little of sign of it while hitting .237/.290/.399 in 111 regular-season games. He's been the weakest link in their lineup pretty much the whole year long.

Aug 3 - 4:42 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI against the Rays on Tuesday/

Beltran has hit in eight straight, though this is his first homer during the streak. He's been trudging along with an OPS in the vicinity of .700 for most of the season, and while that's not what the Astros were hoping for, it hasn't been bad enough to lead to any serious talk of replacing him. After all, he could always have one more magic postseason run in his bat.
Aug 2 - 12:06 AM

Carlos Beltran is absent from the Astros' starting lineup on Saturday.

Carlos Beltran finished 2-for-3 with a double, two-run home run and three RBI in Saturday's 7-1 victory against the Red Sox.

The 40-year-old switch-hitting veteran is proving he has plenty left in the tank, posting five doubles, five home runs and 15 RBI over his past 17 outings. His average leaves a little something to be desired, but he continues to be productive in the power categories.
Jun 18 - 12:04 AM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Astros' lineup Thursday against the Royals.

Jun 8 - 5:39 PM

Jun 6 - 11:52 PM
