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.

|(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

|(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.
|Ever since he had surgery on his right knee in January 2010, costing him half a season for the second straight season, Carlos Beltran has been regarded as one of the more injury-prone players in baseball. But the truth is he's been relatively durable over the last three seasons, earning an All-Star nod in each. Of course, just because he was on the field doesn't mean he was completely healthy. He had all the bumps and bruises you'd expect for a 36-year-old down the stretch last year -- a tight hamstring in early August, a foot contusion just a couple days later, a stiff back in early September, a sore wrist in late September, a rib contusion in October -- and the result was a .277 batting average and .758 OPS after the All-Star break. But considering he overcame a .236 batting average and .742 OPS after the All-Star break in 2012, you shouldn't assume it's a sign of decline. Now in the AL, the occasional time at DH should save Beltran some of that wear and tear. Plus, as a switch-hitter, he bats primarily left-handed, and Yankee Stadium is about the best place a left-handed power hitter can go. Because of his age and the stigma of his injury history, you might be able to draft Beltran as a third outfielder in mixed leagues again. And he'll probably perform more like a No. 2 again.
