Yankees' Carlos Beltran hopes to be factor again in right field


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) 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.

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.

The 37-year-old Beltran is looking forward to returning to the diamond in 2015 after the elbow injury limited him in '14. He hit just .233 with 15 home runs, 23 doubles and 49 RBI in 109 games.

"Last year was such a crazy year for me with the injury, trying to play through it," he said. "I didn't have the year that I was looking forward to having. This year I just feel like I need to prove myself again. Baseball if a roller coaster."
