Carlos Beltran is back in the Yankees lineup as a designated hitter Saturday against the White Sox.

Beltran missed three days due to elbow soreness. He's currently in 1 2-for-28 slump, with no RBI in his last eight games.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he'll have a clearer picture on Carlos Beltran's (elbow) status Saturday.

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.

Carlos Beltran recently received a cortisone shot in his right elbow.

Beltran missed Wednesday's game after aggravating the elbow on Tuesday. Yankees manager Joe Girardi has already said Beltran won't play on Thursday after the injection. Injuries have limited the 37-year-old to 90 games this season, the first in a three-year, $45 million deal.

Carlos Beltran is not in Wednesday's lineup after aggravating his right elbow injury on a swing Tuesday.

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. The veteran will be examined by the doctor before it's determined how big of a setback it is, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi is hoping Beltran will only be out "just a day or two."
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.
Aug 11 - 6:50 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-5 with a grand slam, five RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Indians.

Beltran had an RBI single in the first inning and blew the game open with his grand slam in the sixth. Hampered by an elbow issue for most of the season, the 37-year-old has appeared rejuvenated since the All-Star break, batting .354 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 21 games since the All-Star break. He has pulled his season batting average up from .216 to .251 in the process.
Aug 9 - 12:01 AM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an RBI single on Friday.

Beltran hit the fourth inning home run off of rookie Anthony Ranaudo, his thirteenth of the year. He then added an RBI single off Ranaudo in the sixth. He now has 39 RBI on the year. Beltran remains a frustrating fantasy player, because when he's in the lineup, he still has the ability to make an impact, slashing .244/.300/.442 on the season. If his body holds up in the second half, it's possible that he could do some legitimate damage, but that's a big "if."
Aug 1 - 11:46 PM

Carlos Beltran could return to playing the outfield in a few weeks.

Beltran has been limited to the designated hitter spot since early June due to a bone spur in his right elbow, but he's been throwing for a while and is making progress. "I don't think it's too far off," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
Jul 27 - 10:44 AM

Carlos Beltran had a nice day at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays, going 2-for-3 including a two-run homer.

Beltran's two-run bomb came off Casey Janssen in the ninth inning. He was also hit by a pitch in the ballgame and scored a pair of runs. The veteran outfielder is hitting a disappointing .227/.284/.428 with 12 homers and 34 RBI in his first season with the Yankees.
Jul 26 - 4:35 PM

Carlos Beltran played catch Monday as the Yankees plan to ease him back into outfield duty.

Beltran has been limited to the designated hitter spot since early June due to a bone spur in his right elbow. "He played catch yesterday. I think he’ll probably play two days in a row and then take a day off," manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday. "We’re trying to get him out there." Beltran has been heating up a bit at the plate with three multi-hit games in his last five tries and a pair of homers over his last nine contests.
Jul 23 - 10:06 AM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Beltran now has back-to-back multi-hit games since returning from the All-Star break and the 7-day concussion disabled list. He has three home runs over his last 10 games dating back to late June, which is a good sign for the condition of his elbow.
Jul 19 - 4:10 PM

Yankees activated OF/DH Carlos Beltran from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Beltran suffered multiple facial fractures (and a concussion) when he was struck in the face with a ball during batting practice, but he wound up missing the minimum amount of time. He's in the designated hitter spot and batting sixth for the Yankees Friday.
Jul 18 - 3:31 PM

Yankees placed DH Carlos Beltran on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Beltran suffered multiple facial fractures (and a concussion) when he was struck in the face by a tipped batting practice ball on Wednesday night. He reported feeling better a few hours after the injury and will aim to return to the Yankees right after the All-Star break.
