Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran batting 1-2 Wednesday for Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) The loss of Jacoby Ellsbury to a knee injury has the Yankees scrambling the top of their lineup for the Wednesday night game in Washington.

Brett Gardner is set to lead off for just the fourth time this season with Carlos Beltran batting in the second spot for only the second time in 2015.

Perhaps the move will jump-start Gardner, who followed a seven-game hitting streak with a 3-for-20 slide that has lowered his batting average under .300 for the first time since April 25.


Yankees give Carlos Beltran a breather on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/2015) Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for the Yankees in Thursday's series-finale with the Rays. Chris Young will get the start in right field and bat sixth for manager Joe Girardi.

Beltran had started 10 straight games for the Yankees, and all but one he started in right field. Over that stretch, Beltran hit .270 (10 for 37) with a pair of home runs and six RBI. 

He'll give way to Young who has been slumping lately, hitting just .250 with a double, zero home runs and zero RBI over his last eight games.


Yankees' Carlos Beltran hits second home run in as many games


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) Carlos Beltran connected for his second home run in as many games Monday in the Yankees' victory over the Rays.

Beltran had not homered all season until Sunday, making Monday's blast his second of the year.

Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann go deep for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann both hit solo home runs in the Yankees win over Baltimore on Sunday. 

Beltran went 2 for 2 and hit his first home run of the season. He now has 13 RBI and is hitting .210. He also walked twice. 

"I think the most important thing for me is being able to have consistent at-bats," Beltran said.

"He's swung a lot better in the last 10 days, since we had that off-day before Boston," manager Joe Girardi said. "You just keep riding him out there because you know it’s going to change. It's no fun when you're going through it, but he’s too good of a hitter for it to last."

McCann went 1 for 3, walked once and scored twice. He's hitting .242, with four home runs and 18 RBI. 


Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran back in the lineup Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, batting sixth and playing right.

Beltran got the day off Saturday after struggling at the plate early on this season, according to NJ.com.

"I don't know if [when] you're that old, you press," manager Joe Girardi said. "Is there a difference between frustration and pressing? I don't know. I think there's frustration and maybe he's trying a little bit too hard, but I thought he was pretty relaxed the other day."

Beltran came through for New York Friday with a double and two RBI.

"A lot of it has to do with pitch selection," Girardi said. "Sometimes it can be a little bit mechanical. I think it was sometimes part of that early on...but I think that's probably corrected."


Yankees' Cashman on Carlos Beltran: 'He's still looking for his swing'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) It's been well-documented outfielder Carlos Beltran struggled in his first year with the Yankees in 2014, and it largely was because of an elbow injury he had to deal with for most of the season.

Well, Beltran is healthy in 2015, but he is struggling offensively to begin the season. He is batting just .162 with no home runs and seven RBI in 18 games.

“Our coaches say he’s still looking for his swing,” Cashman said of Beltran, per the New York Post. “If you want to look at the negative, you can speculate about his age and how he’s done the last two years. But there are a lot of high-end players who are doing unexpected things in April -- some good and some not great -- and you wait for the market correction. … Until he performs, there’s going to be speculation.”


Yankees manager Joe Girardi believes in Carlos Beltran getting going


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Yankees veteran outfielder Carlos Beltran isn't hitting well to start the 2015 season. Beltran is hitting a lowly .173 and just 6 for 39 batting left-handed. After going with Chris Young over Beltran in the lineup Saturday, manger Joe Girardi had words of encouragement for the veteran, according to The Journal News.

"I know he's frustrated," Girardi said. "He had a couple big hits the other day. It's been a little bit harder left-handed for him, but I really believe he's going to get going. I do. He probably needs a break here and there and it will start happening for him."

Beltran also sat out two games last week due to an illness and Girardi was worried he wasn't ready to come back when he did.

"I'm sure it hasn't helped," Girardi said. "I thought he was still somewhat weak in Detroit. At the end of the road trip, he still had a little bit of a chest cold. I think he's better now. He's really important to our offense and we have to get him going."


Yankees Chris Young gets start in right over Carlos Beltran


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's Subway Series game against the Mets. 

Chris Young replaces Beltran, batting sixth in the lineup. It's Young's sixth start of the year in right. He also has five starts in left. 

"Cy's been playing well. Righties have had more success off Harvey. I thought we'd put Cy out there," Girardi said to The Journal News. "We're trying because he's playing so well. The good thing is, we've run into some lefties. We'll see another one tomorrow. There have been some situations where I've been able to get him in there. He’s been swinging so well, we’re looking for ways."

The Yankees are -115 money line favorites at home against the Mets.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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.

"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.”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"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.
