by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran has increased to throwing at 100-120 feet, according to MLB.com on Monday.

(7/27/2014) Yankees DH Carlos Beltran, who has been bothered by a lingering elbow injury, could be back in the outfield within in a few weeks, manager Joe Girardi told reporters Sunday.

"He’s continuing to throw," Girardi said, per The Journal News. "He has progressed and he has thrown more and more distance as we’ve went on, and he’s done some outfield drills early. I don’t think it’s too far off. I don’t know if it will happen next week, but after that, I think it’s a possibility."


Carlos Beltran goes deep again Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran homered for the second time in as many days Saturday, in a 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays.

Beltran followed up Friday's solo home run with a two-run shot in the ninth inning Saturday, as the Yankees tried to rally back late. He finished the game 2 for 3 with two RBI and two runs scored, and also added a walk in the loss.

Beltran had just two home runs in July before Friday, but now has as many over the last 20 hours.  He has four in the month and 12 on the season, while hitting just .227/.284/.428 overall in 264 at-bats. 


Carlos Beltran goes deep in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Beltran had just one hit in the game, but he mad it count, as he helped spark a rally in third inning. He slugged a solo home run, his 11th of the season, and his lone contribution to the win amid a pair of strikeouts.

Beltran has struggled to get his bat going this season, while also dealing with a variety of injuries. He is hitting .222/.275/.414 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 261 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Yankees veteran Carlos Beltran could begin a throwing program soon, MLB.com has reported. He has been recovering from an elbow injury that has prevented him from playing the field.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) The Yankees activated outfielder Carlos Beltran from the concussion disabled list and put him back in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

Beltran has been on the DL since he was hit in the face by a ball during batting practice July 9. He has not played since July 6 as he also dealt with a knee injury prior to suffering a concussion.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Carlos Beltran diagnosed with two fractured facial bones


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran has been diagnosed with two fractured bones after being struck on the face by a batted ball during batting practice, the Star-Ledger reports.

One of the fractures was on the right side of the face above the nose, while the other is just below the nose. Doctors were also worried he may have suffered a concussion after a batted ball carommed off a protective screen and onto the bridge of his nose.

"The fracture is something that's going to get better and it's not going to affect me for the rest of my life," Beltran said. "And the concussion — I got hit in the face. They want to make sure — hopefully tomorrow I wake up feeling better. No headache, less symptoms than today."


Carlos Beltran scratched Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Beltran was initially slated to start, but injured himself during batting practice. He was hit in the eye by a ball that ricocheted off a screen. It's unclear how serious the issue is at this time. Beltran is hitting .216/.271/.401 over 232 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran returns as DH Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is back in the designated hitter spot Wednesday against the Indians, after missing two games in a row with right knee swelling.

Carlos Beltran out a second straight game Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight game Tuesday at Cleveland due to swelling in his right knee. Beltran is mired in a 4-for-22 slump through six July games.

Carlos Beltran out with right knee swelling


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran was not in Monday's lineup against Cleveland due to swelling in his right knee, reports the Wall Street Journal. Beltran was headed for a medical evaluation.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-4 win over the Twins Thursday.

Beltran's blast came in the fifth inning to put his team on the board and give the Yankees a 3-2 lead. The win snaps the team's five-game losing streak. Beltran has hit .222/.277/.416 with nine home runs and 27 RBI in 221 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran homers Sunday, dealing with forearm soreness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran went 3 for 4 with a double and a solo home run in his team's 8-5 loss to the Red Sox Sunday.

Beltran clarified before Sunday's game that the issues limiting him to designated-hitter duties have to do with his forearm, not elbow, MLB.com reports. "My elbow feels fine. It's just the forearm, when I started throwing, it kind of got tight," Beltran said. "Now the knot is almost gone. It's still sore a little bit on the top, but it's improving."

The Yankees have tentative plans for Beltran to resume throwing in a week. He'll stick in his role as designated hitter until he can throw without issue. Beltran has hit .220/.276/.415 with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 205 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran shut down from throwing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran had his throwing program shut down yet again Tuesday, due to tightness in his right forearm.

Beltran has been able to serve as a designated hitter since returning from the disabled list, and does not feel the injury in his elbow while batting. He will remain at DH moving forward, and at this point there is no timeline for his return to throwing. 


Carlos Beltran to test arm Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran plans to throw from the outfield to the bases before Sunday's game, reports ESPN. It's the last step before the team establishes a plan for returning Beltran to the outfield.

He's been strictly a DH lately, due to his elbow injury.


Carlos Beltran hits a walkoff shot Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran hit a walkoff home run Friday against the Orioles.

Beltran stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with two men on base. He worked a five-pitch at-bat against Zach Britton. On the final pitch, Beltran drove a three run shot out to left field. He finished 2 for 4, with one run scored and three RBI. Beltran is hitting .227/.280/.426 over 176 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran still without a timetable for return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran continues to play catch in New York, but remains without a timetable for return, manager Joe Girardi told reporters on Thursday, according to the Journal News.

"I can't really give you a guess," Girardi said. "He's going to play catch. He will continue to play catch here, but I don't really have a date on it. We're trying to lengthen him out in a little bit where he's throwing farther, and increasing the intensity a little bit, but we don't really have a date. It's kind of a day by day thing because we kind of told him, if he feels anything, we probably need to stop it. So I don't really have a date."

Is it time to drop Carlos Beltran in Fantasy leagues?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) It seems unthinkable, but it might be time for Fantasy owners to consider dropping Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran. While Beltran is trying to play through a lingering elbow injury, his production is suffering and there's still a chance he might be shut down to have surgery.

Right now, Beltran is just appearing as the Yankees' DH, but he's batting just .136 (3 for 22) in six games since returning from the DL. Even before going on the DL in mid-May, Beltran was mired in a 5-for-43 slump.

Perhaps if Beltran said he was fully healthy, then we could just attribute his struggles to needing at-bats after about a month layoff. However, he said he still feels some pain in the elbow and can't play in the field, so it's not very encouraging.

It's never easy to give up on a high-end Fantasy outfielder, but this isn't a 100-percent Beltran and he doesn't have the same Fantasy value. If you are looking to add players like Oswaldo Arcia, Corey Dickerson or other surging outfielders off waivers, then dropping Beltran in mixed leagues is a legitimate move if you need the roster spot.


Carlos Beltran will try to throw Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran will try to throw for the first time in nearly a month Wednesday, as he continues to work his way through bone spurs in his right elbow.

Beltran has been playing over the last week, but was limited to serving as the designated hitter. This could be a big step in his attempt to return to playing in the field, though it is not clear if there is any rush at this point.

"It's there. I still feel a little pain," Beltran told The Star-Ledger Tuesday. "But it's something — I have to deal with it. So, right now, I'm not really thinking about it. I'm just trying to not focus on that and focus on what's important and just find my stroke and be able to be out there in the lineup."


Carlos Beltran still feeling pain in elbow


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is still feeling some pain in his elbow, according to NJ.com.

Beltran said his elbow feels better than it did, but he's still dealing with some pain. "I cannot take a lot but before every at-bat I go (to the batting cage) and take six, eight swings to warm up," Beltran said. He added that he can't push himself like he used to due to the injury.

Beltran is hitting .223 in 139 at-bats. 


Carlos Beltran gets the start at DH


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran will get the start at designated hitter Thursday.

Beltran has not been cleared to play the field quite yet, so he might DH for a while. He's dealing with an elbow injury, but has shown enough improvement to return. He's hitting .234 over 128 at-bats.


Carlos Beltran activated from disabled list Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran has been activated from the disabled list Thursday, according to the New York Post.

Beltran has been dealing with an elbow injury, but was expected back Thursday. He will likely be used as the team's designated hitter in the short term. He's hitting .234 over 128 at-bats. 


Carlos Beltran expected back in lineup Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014)  Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran's elbow injury has improved enough that he is expected to come off the disabled list Thursday, manager Joe Girardi told media Wednesday.

Beltran is on his way to New York from the team's spring training facility, and will serve as the designated hitter for Thursday's game against the A's. Beltran will act as the DH or the time being, in order to get his bat back. At this point, it is not clear when Beltran will be cleared to play in the field.
