Yankees OF Carlos Beltran won't play until Friday at the earliest


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) 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.”

(2/28/2015) 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
(2/23/2015) 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. 


Yankees' Beltran: 'This year I just feel like I need to prove myself again'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran said during an interview with YES Network that he is regaining the range of motion in his elbow following surgery. Beltran played with a bone spur in his right elbow during the 2014 season.

"The strengthening program, you know, we kind of basically did everything," Beltran said, per NJ.com. "So the range of motion is there. Bending is there. That's the most important part of rehab. Trying to be able to get that range of motion back."

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."
