Yankees' Carlos Beltran hopes to be factor again in right field
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) After an injury-filled 2014 season, Carlos Beltran is looking to be back in right field for the Yankees.
A right elbow injury forced Beltran to spend most of his games as a designated hitter. In September, he had surgery to remove a bone spur and three chips. Now that his elbow has healed, Beltran is ready to play both offense and defense in 2015.
"I just want to be productive," Beltran said, per MLB.com. "When I play baseball, I just want to put myself in a position where I can impact the team in a positive way, defensively or offensively. I understand that as a hitter, I'm going to have my month where I'm hitting .230. That's not going to go away. It's always been like that."
In 2014, Beltran posted a .233 batting average with 15 home runs and 49 RBI, with the elbow injury playing a large reason why.
Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (elbow) to make spring debut Friday

|(3/4/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said outfielder Carlos Beltran will make his spring debut Friday, according to The Wall Street Journal. Beltran is coming off surgery in October to remove a bone spur from his elbow.
Yankees OF Carlos Beltran won't play until Friday at the earliest
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is being held out of spring games until Friday, per MLB.com. The Yankees are just taking it slow with the veteran outfielder, who said he feels good hitting and throwing.
Beltran had a bone spur removed from his elbow in October.
"We’re just taking it a little bit slower with him because of the surgery he came off of," manager Joe Girardi said, per ESPN. "We feel pretty good about where he’s at, but I’m just going to give him a couple of extra days. Nothing that’s happened in camp to do that, just going a little bit slower with him.”
Girardi: Yankees 'taking it slow' with Carlos Beltran
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) The Yankees are taking things slow with outfielder Carlos Beltran, and he won't be rushed into full throwing drills until he indicates he's ready, NJ.com reports.
"We're just taking it slow," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's done some throwing. We don't feel, with five weeks of games, there's really any reason to rush him. Guys do their work. But let's make sure he feels really good where he's at and we feel really good about where he's at."
Beltran had a bone spur removed from his elbow in October. He dealt with the issue throughout last season and hit just .233/.301/.402 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI in 403 at-bats. Beltran has performed light throwing drills and taken part in batting practice since reporting to camp Wednesday.
Yankees' Carlos Beltran says he's 100 percent
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran says he feels fine heading into camp, according to NJ.com.
Beltran was limited last season by an elbow injury, and wound up having surgery in September. Beltran admitted that he'll need the prove himself this season after struggling in 2014. "Every year you have to prove yourself," Beltran said. "There are always expectations...But physically [now] I feel fine. I have a lot of confidence in myself."
Manager Joe Girardi said he was glad the outfielder was feeling good. "It's nice to see him healthy," Girardi said. "I felt bad for him last year because every swing you never knew how much it was going to grab at him or how much it was going to hurt."
Beltran is expected to open the year as the team's starter in right. The 37-year-old hit .233/.301/.402 over 403 at-bats last season.
|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.
