4:17pm: The Yankees have indeed placed Beltran on the 15-day DL, the team announced. “I’m getting better, but not to the point where I can swing the bat 100%,” he said. A decision about surgery will be made at the end of the DL stint. It would sideline him for 6-8 weeks.
3:51pm: It appears the Yankees have placed Carlos Beltran on the disabled list. He is not listed on today’s lineup card, which is usually a very good indication of a demotion or DL stint. Obviously he’s not going to the minors, so DL it is. Beltran is currently out with a bone spur in his elbow that may require surgery. We’ll find out more before tonight’s game, so stay tuned for updates.
