Latest Update Beltran homers in Yankees victory Sat Aug, 23, 07:11 PM
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 hasn't been terrible in between injuries this season, as Saturday's home run was his 16th on the year. Beltran's season has been a disappointment due to injuries this season, but he can provide modest pop for you if he was dropped by a frustrated owner following his latest elbow ailment. Analyst: Ben Diamond
As we stated earlier with Beltran, if his pain is manageable, then he'll play. How effective he'll be is definitely in question though. You can use him if you need the potential of a home run, but whether you'll actually receive it it up in the air. Hard to trust him given the injury circumstances.Analyst: Howard Bender
Beltran will be in and out like this for the duration of the season, He's in the midst of a flare-up from the bone spurs in his elbow. Once things subside, he'll be back int he lineup. But another flare-up is on its way so don't hold too much faith in a full September from him.Analyst: Howard Bender
Beltran received a cortisone shot in his left elbow, which was the same that caused him to land on the DL for nearly a month. The elbow has been ailing him for much of the season, so hopefully the time off will allow him to swing pain-free. If his elbow responds well to the swinging he could be back in the lineup this weekend, or early next week. Analyst: Ben Diamond
