Carlos Beltran won't receive a fourth cortisone shot this season for his ailing right elbow.

Beltran has had three shots over the course of the season in hopes of gutting it out, but if he's still unable to play after a few days the 37-year-old will likely shut it down instead of getting another shot. Either way, Beltran is expected to undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from the elbow immediately after the season ends.

Carlos Beltran is likely to undergo surgery on his injured right elbow as soon as the season is over.

Bone spurs have caused Beltran discomfort for much of the 2014 season and he's batting just .239/.305/.416 in the first year of a three-year, $45 million deal. The hope is that he'll be ready for the start of spring training in 2015. He'll turn 38 years old next April.

They'll know at that point whether the cortisone injection Beltran received in his right elbow had the desired effect. If it didn't, Beltran could be placed on the disabled list. The 37-year-old has been limited to 90 games this season and will undergo surgery this offseason to remove a bone spur from his elbow.

Beltran return to playing the outfield in the last week, but he was in the DH spot Tuesday and felt something in his elbow on a swing.

Aug 20 - 3:57 PM

Carlos Beltran will return to right field on Saturday, the first time that he's played the outfield since May 10.

A bone spur in his throwing elbow has limited Beltran to designated hitter duty since that date. Now that he's able to return to the outfield, the Yankees will have much more flexibility in their lineup with the ability to utilize the DH spot to rest other regulars.
Aug 16 - 12:53 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that Carlos Beltran could return to playing right field "in the real near future."

Beltran has been limited to designated hitter duty since mid-May due to a bone spur in his right elbow. However, he's been working out in the outfield for a while now and is feeling much better. "He’s definitely feeling a lot better. It’s something that we’ll talk about pretty soon here," Girardi said.
