Carlos Beltran launched a solo homer, drove in two runs and scored a pair of runs in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

R.A. Dickey left a knuckleball up in the fourth inning, and Beltran clubbed it into the right field seats. It was the veteran's 10th dinger of the season and fifth over his last 15 games. Beltran has collected 10 hits and 10 RBI over his last five contests.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Carlos Beltran can block trades to 15 teams under his limited no-trade clause.

There's nothing to indicate that the Yankees will be sellers -- the club has played a bit better of late -- but a trade could be a possibility if they end up falling out of the race. The Indians, Nationals, Royals, Cardinals, Rays, Tigers and Dodgers are among the teams Beltran can be traded to without his permission. Beltran, 39, is batting .274 with nine home runs and an .822 OPS over 43 games this season. He's due to become a free agent after the season.

Carlos Beltran doubled three times and knocked in three runs versus the A's in Friday's win.

It's just the fourth time in his career that he's doubled three times in a game, the others coming in 1999, 2006 and 2008. Beltran is batting .273 with five homers and eight doubles in 19 games this month after a modest April. The surge won't last forever, but he's still a threat at age 39.
May 21 - 2:00 AM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and an RBI double in Thursday's 4-1 win over the A's.

Beltran saved the Yankees' bacon, as they squandered chance after chance and base-runner after base-runner with shoddy mistakes -- one inning saw Chase Headley picked off from first and Didi Gregorius thrown out on a late attempt for a double. But a few well-timed hits are all you need in this life. Beltran went to work with an RBI double against Kendall Graveman in the third inning. He would later uncoil for a two-run home run in the ninth inning to break the tension on what had been a one-run game. For the season, Beltran is hitting .250/.279/.493 with nine home runs and 22 RBI over 144 at-bats.
May 20 - 1:17 AM

Carlos Beltran crushed his seventh homer of the year and later collected a double in Wednesday's loss to the Royals.

Beltran got a 2-0 fastball from Yordano Ventura and bombed it to deep right field. The veteran outfielder is only hitting .261 with three walks in 124 plate appearances, but he's showing that he still has plenty of power. His .235 ISO is higher than it's been since 2007 with the Mets. So while that should indicate that the power binge won't continue to this extent all year, it's encouraging to see some life left in the 39-year-old's swing.
May 11 - 11:07 PM

Carlos Beltran launched a pair of solo homers in Monday’s 6-2 win over the Royals.

Beltran homered off Chris Young in the second inning before taking him deep again one inning later. The 39-year-old is now up to six home runs on the year, though he’s batting just .245 with a .261 on-base percentage and an ugly 27/3 K/BB ratio. His skills appear to be in decline, but he could become trade bait for the Yankees if they fall out of the race this summer.
May 9 - 10:09 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Red Sox.

It's just a routine day of rest for the 39-year-old. Aaron Hicks will draw the start in his place and bat seventh against opposing left-hander David Price.
May 1 - 5:27 PM

Carlos Beltran clubbed his third home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough for the Yankees to overcome the Mariners.

Beltran tagged Nick Vincent for the solo shot leading off the seventh inning, pulling the Yankees to within a run at 3-2, unfortunately that would be as close as they'd get. Beltran also doubled twice and singled in the ballgame, finishing the afternoon 4-for-5. He has swung an extremely hot bat to begin the season, slashing .351/.368/.649 with three homers and seven RBI.
Apr 16 - 4:35 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 and clobbered his second home run of the season as the Yankees rolled over the Tigers 8-4 on Saturday afternoon in Motown.

His two-run blast came in off of Buck Farmer in the seventh inning, increasing the Bombers advantage to 8-2 and effectively putting the game out of reach. Beltran is off to a nice start to his 2016 campaign, hitting .294 with two homers and four RBI.
Apr 9 - 4:38 PM

Carlos Beltran hit his first spring homer and delivered a sac fly as a Yankees split-squad edged the Pirates 5-4 in five innings Tuesday.

Beltran opened the spring batting third, but he's found himself fifth or sixth lately. That's probably where he'll open the season, though manager Joe Girardi could play the hot hand in deciding whether Alex Rodriguez or Beltran will hit third. Beltran is hitting .286 with two extra-base hits and one walk in 35 at-bats this spring.
Mar 29 - 3:51 PM

Batting fifth, Carlos Beltran singled in a run against the Braves on Saturday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi had typically batted Beltran third and Alex Rodriguez fifth this spring, but they were reversed today. It's hard to tell which direction Girardi will go once the season starts, but whoever does get to bat third will receive a value boost. Neither Beltran (.653 OPS) not Rodriguez (.708 OPS) is exactly tearing it up this spring.
Mar 19 - 5:39 PM

Carlos Beltran hopes to continue playing beyond this season.

Beltran previously suggested 2016 could be his last year but now he's hoping to play at least two more seasons. "I would love to play 20 years in the big leagues,"said Beltran. "So that means two more years if possible." The 38-year-old is entering the last year of his contract. Beltran could extend his career by playing DH but that position is currently being filled by Alex Rodriguez.
Mar 5 - 4:46 PM

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.
