Just like last year, injuries seem to be a continuous problem that the Yankees are battling. Lucky for them, their latest injury report on Carlos Beltran isn’t as serious as they thought it would be.
It was announced during last night’s game that Beltran will be day-to-day with swelling in his right knee. Although it feels like there is a hole in the lineup without him, the Yankees will be the first to tell you that they are glad it will not result in another disabled list stint. Beltran has spent a vast amount of time on the DL this season with a bone spur in his right elbow.
With Beltran having swung a good bat as of late, it is important for him to get the swelling down, and return to the lineup as soon as possible. After receiving treatment on Monday, he is just as eager to start playing again.
“I feel better,” Beltran told Brendan Kuty of NJ.com. I’m going to do the whole preparation and see if I can get into the lineup Tuesday.”
