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."
