Yankees' Carlos Beltran undergoes elbow surgery
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/30/14) The Yankees announced that outfielder Carlos Beltran underwent surgery to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his right elbow, per the Journal News on Tuesday.
The procedure is not expected to slow him down in the offseason. Beltran is expected to resume throwing and hitting in roughly six weeks. He should be cleared to begin playing in 12 weeks, according to the paper.
Beltran appeared in just three of the final 20 games in September because of the issue. He finished the year with a .233/.301/.402 line with 15 home runs and 49 RBI in 403 at-bats.

|(9/24/14) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that designated hitter Carlos Beltran will definitely not play again this season, LoHud.com reports.
Beltran has been putting off elbow surgery until his season was over, so he will presumably schedule a procedure in the next few days. He finishes with a .233/.301/.402 line as well as 15 home runs and 49 RBI in 403 at-bats.
Manager: Outfielders likely doomed to sit for rest of season

|(9/24/14) Joe Girardi has conceded that Yankees ailing outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) and Carlos Beltran (elbow) appear destined to miss the rest of the season.
"It's going to be pretty tough," Girardi told the Wall Street Journal in regard to their future availability.

|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) According to MLB.com, Carlos Beltran has opted not to have surgery on his right elbow until after the season, opening up the possibility that he could play during the regular season's final week. Beltran has reported feeling more pain recently as a result of bone spurs in the elbow, and he was too sore to start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
However, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, "We're going to wait to see if he can help us any time in the course of this week because we're still fighting." Beltran last played on Friday, serving as the Yankees' designated hitter against the Blue Jays.
Carlos Beltran may not return
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran may not return this season, according to the YES Network.
Beltran has been dealing with a lingering elbow issue most of the season. Manager Joe Girardi said he's unsure whether Beltran will play again this season due to the issue. Beltran is hitting .233/.301/.402 over 403 at-bats.
|2014 summary: After a pair of healthy seasons with the Cardinals, Carlos Beltran's first go-around with the Yankees was marked by injuries that kept him off the field for a large portion of the season. Beltran missed close to a month with a shoulder injury, and when he returned, he was almost exclusively a designated hitter. His right elbow wound up holding him out of all but two of the Yankees' final 20 games, and after the season, Beltran had loose bodies and a bone spur removed. When he was on the field, Beltran did not hit with his customary power; he was limited to a .233 batting average, 15 home runs and 49 RBI in 103 games.|
Playing time status: Beltran should be ready for spring training, though at this stage of his career, owners should expect that he could miss substantial playing due to health issues during the season.
2015 outlook: Fantasy owners have written Beltran off before due to health issues and aging, but now that he is 37, it's harder to bank on a rebound. Beltran still has enough power to deserve consideration in standard mixed leagues, but he is not worth a gamble any earlier than the late rounds.
