Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI double Friday against the Red Sox.

This was just his third multi-hit game of the season and his first since April 22. That was also the last time he drove in a run. The 39-year-old is batting just .181 through 19 games and is still looking for his first home run.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple in Wednesday's 13-run outburst against the Tigers.

For now, at least, it's his first triple since 2013. However, it clearly should have been ruled a double, with him taking third on the throw. Perhaps that will be fixed if anyone cares to make it happen.

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Apr 21 - 5:23 PM

Carlos Beltran (illness) is back in the Yankees' lineup Monday.

Beltran missed the last two games while battling the flu. While he's in the lineup, the struggling outfielder has been moved down to the No. 5 spot in the batting order. Alex Rodriguez is hitting third.
Apr 20 - 4:17 PM

The Yankees are hopeful that Carlos Beltran (illness) will be ready to return to the lineup on Monday.

Manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that Beltran was still feeling "weak" due to the flu, which is why he's sitting out for the second day in a row. The veteran outfielder is off to an awful start at the plate with a .184/.238/.289 batting line through his first 10 games.

Carlos Beltran (illness) is not in the Yankees' lineup on Saturday night against the Rays.

Beltran is dealing with flu-like symptoms and might miss Sunday's game as well. The veteran outfielder has produced a weak .184/.238/.289 slash line on the young season.
Apr 18 - 5:27 PM

Carlos Beltran (illness) is unlikely to play Friday.

Beltran was held out of Thursday's lineup due to flu-like symptoms and will get another day of rest. However, he should be fine by the time Opening Day rolls around.
Apr 2 - 4:14 PM

Carlos Beltran was held out of Grapefruit League action on Thursday due to a stomach virus.

It shouldn't have any effect on his readiness for Opening Day. Beltran is falling far in drafts this spring after batting just .233/.301/.402 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI in his first year of a three-year, $45 million free agent deal with the Yankees. He's a pretty good bounceback candidate in 2015, even at age 37.
Apr 2 - 1:40 PM

Carlos Beltran (elbow) came through his first Grapefruit League game on Friday feeling good.

He finished the day 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout. The veteran outfielder indicated that he simply needs to get his timing back now, which he has plenty of time to do before the regular season opens. Slated to spend most of his time roaming the outfield though, he does possess injury risk.
Mar 6 - 11:08 PM

Carlos Beltran (elbow) will make his Grapefruit League debut on Friday.

The Yankees are understandably easing Beltran into things this spring, as he turns 38 in April and is coming back from surgery to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his right elbow. He's hoping for better results in his second season in the Bronx.
Mar 4 - 3:42 PM

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.

Carlos Beltran (elbow) won't play again in 2014.

Beltran can now go ahead and have surgery to remove the painful bone spurs from his right elbow. He should be 100 percent heading into 2015 and will be a decent bounceback candidate even in his age-38 season.
Wed, Sep 24, 2014 05:10:00 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi on Wednesday said that "it's going to be pretty tough" for Carlos Beltran (elbow) to make it back this season.

That's been the feeling since he had another setback with his elbow last Friday, but this is the first time Girardi has essentially ruled Beltran out. The veteran outfielder needs surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow, but he'll be fine for spring training.
Wed, Sep 24, 2014 11:16:00 AM

Carlos Beltran (elbow) might not play again this season.

Beltran indicated Saturday that he might go ahead and have surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow, but while he's decided to delay an operation until the offseason, it's still possible that he might not play over the final week. He'll need 12 weeks to recover once he does go under the knife. The 37-year-old has disappointed with a .233/.301/.402 batting line and 15 homers over 109 games this season.
