Jul 19 - 11:07 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the team expects to activate Carlos Beltran from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Beltran played in a minor league rehab game on Friday and could've been activated on Saturday, though with the Yankees playing an afternoon game it would've been too quick of a turnaround. Expect to see him back in the Bombers lineup on Sunday.
Jul 18 - 1:27 PM

Carlos Beltran (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Beltran had said previously that the plan was to activate him after he played in rehab games on Wednesday and Thursday, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that's not the case. It's unclear whether he will return at some point over the weekend, but obviously he's close.
Jul 17 - 10:33 AM

Carlos Beltran (oblique) went 1-for-3 and played five innings in right field in his latest minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa on Thursday.

The 38-year-old had been hopeful of a return to the Yankees immediately following the All-Star break, though that has yet to be confirmed. He hit .260/.309/.430 with seven homers and 30 RBI over 66 games in the first half of the season.
Jul 16 - 8:46 PM

Carlos Beltran (oblique) is hopeful he can return to the Yankees after the All-Star Break.

Beltran hit the disabled list on July 3 with the left oblique injury. The veteran hopes to return after the All-Star Break, but there is nothing concrete in terms of a set return date at this point.
Jul 10 - 4:01 PM

Yankees placed OF Carlos Beltran on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 1, with a left oblique strain.

The Yanks gave Beltran a couple days to see if he could improve enough to avoid the DL, but obviously it didn't happen. He'll be eligible for activation immediately following the All-Star break, but it remains to be ready if he'll be ready at that time.
Jul 3 - 3:04 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the club didn't have Carlos Beltran (ribs) swing at all Wednesday.

Girardi said the team will make an evaluation of Beltran's status Thursday. At this point, a disabled list trip seems like a 50/50 proposition. Outfielder Taylor Dugas was promoted in the event Beltran can't go.
Jul 1 - 10:49 PM

The Yankees will examine Carlos Beltran (rib cage) prior to Wednesday's game before determining whether he needs a stint on the disabled list.

The Yanks will promote outfielder Taylor Dugas on Wednesday as protection for Beltran, but they could send down a reliever if they think Beltran will be ready in a few days. For what it's worth, the veteran outfielder felt after suffering a rib cage injury Tuesday that he wouldn't need a trip to the DL.
