Injury Update: Beltran To Play Through Elbow Injury...For Now

According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, New York Yankees’ outfielder Carlos Beltran intends on playing through the pain caused by a bone spur in his elbow. At least for the time being according to a “source” familiar with the situation.



The best case scenario for the Yankees, would be for Beltran to endure the pain, get the occasional cortisone injection, receive more rest than originally planned, and have surgery to remove the spur this coming off-season. The team can’t withstand much more on the injury front, already having lost starting pitchers Ivan Nova (season), C.C. Sabathia, and Michael Pineda (July for both). Fortunately, the Yankees do have quality depth in the outfield, with Ichiro Suzuki having a solid first quarter of the season, Alfonso Soriano, and minor league call-up Zoilo Almonte, who made a big splash in the Bronx upon being called up last season.
