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.

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.

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.

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.

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Sunday against the Orioles.

Beltran went from hitting .233/.301/.402 in his first year in New York to .276/.337/.471 at age 38 this season. The Bombers should be considering themselves fortunate they got so much out of him. They'll need him to keep it up in the postseason, particularly since he's counted on to help break up the lefties.

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

The veteran outfielder was unlikely to play in both contests, so it appears as though he'll sit out the first and return to the lineup later in the day. Jose Pirela will draw the start in right field and bat seventh for the Bombers.

Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer off Chris Sale to do all of the Yankees' damage in a 3-2 defeat of the White Sox on Thursday.

Beltran also singled in the contest. He has three homers in six games and 18 overall in what's been a surprisingly productive season, given his early ineptitude.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-3 with a solo home run as the Yankees outlasted the Blue Jays 6-4 in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Beltran hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning to make it 2-0 before starter Luis Severino even took the mound. He would smack a solo homer in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie. The veteran has 17 home runs, 60 RBI, and a .279/.336/.473 triple-slash line in a strong age-38 season.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Saturday against the Mets.

Beltran haunted his former team by launching a three-run homer off a 100 fastball from Noah Syndergaard in the first inning. It was more than enough for Michael Pineda and the Yankees' bullpen. Beltran started the season slow, but he's hitting .303 with nine home runs and 26 RBI during the second half.

Carlos Beltran accounted for all of the Yankees' offense in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles, finishing 2-for-4.

Beltran tied the game in the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez. He then gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead with a two-run single in the third inning. The home run was the veteran's first extra-base hit in a week, but he has otherwise had a strong second half. Beltran, overall, is batting .279/.340/.478 with 15 home runs and 53 RBI.

Carlos Beltran sent the Yankees to a 1-0 win over the Astros on Monday with a walk-off sacrifice fly.

Beltran was 1-for-3 before stepping to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the bottom of the ninth. The veteran lifted a Chad Qualls offering to center field, deep enough to score Brett Gardner for the win. Beltran is on an eight-game hitting streak and owns a .272/.331/.474 batting line with 13 home runs and 47 RBI on the season.

Beltran drilled a two-run home run off of Brian Duensing in the sixth inning, tying the game at 7-7. It's his fourth home run in his last seven games. He continues to show plenty of life at the plate, batting .268/.331/.476 with 13 home runs and 42 RBI on the year.
