Latest Update Carlos Beltran drives in two against Texas Wed Jul, 30, 08:50 AM
Has tremendous baseball instincts. Is silky-smooth both at the plate and in the field. Hits for power & average with great patience. Can still steal a base and rarely gets caught. Is solid defensively.
Flaws: : Knee problems have forced him to a corner outfield position, after years of playing center field. Is somewhat prone to injury, in general. Can be somewhat streaky as a fielder and doesn't like to play through pain.
Beltran has now hit in six-straight games with multi-hit performances in three of his last four. He's batting .409 (9-for-22) with two home runs, six RBI and five runs scored in that span and looks like he's finally gotten his power stroke back. Just be careful as the season presses on as Beltran still has elbow issues that haven't been taken care of entirely and he could wear down towards the final month of the season. For now, though, keep him active as he's producing strong totals you're going to need.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Yankees have been using Beltran as their primary designated hitter while Beltran works on strengthening his injured shoulder. The old outfielder has really struggled this season by posting a slash line of .228/.287/.427 and is barely ownable in fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Beltran is hitting .259 in the month of July with four home runs and 10 RBI. Overall on the season Beltran is hitting just .229 with 28 runs, 12 home runs and 35 RBI.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
It's been a lost season thus far for the injury prone Yankee, but he has heated up since returning from a DL stint, with three home runs and six RBI's over nine games. He has hit home runs in back to back games now, bringing his total to 12 home runs. Beltran offers solid pop, but his .222 average hurts his value. It wouldn't be surprising to see him continue to hit a good amount of home runs, and his average will likely rise a bit, as a .227 BABIP has hurt him. He could certainly have a stronger second half if he's healthy, but don't count on him avoiding the disabled list. Analyst: Ben Diamond
