Beltran has two small facial fractures after getting hit by ball in BP


Carlos Beltran has two small facial fractures after being hit by a ball that ricocheted off the cage during batting practice, Joe Girardi announced. They still need to make sure he did not suffer a concussion, but there’s a chance he will avoid the disabled list. The All-Star break is only four games away, after all. This team, man.

      This garnered a chuckle!!

    Didn’t one of the braves outfielders play with a broken jaw? I expect Beltran to be back soon.

    • Chip Rodriguez

      Jason Heyward? No, he missed some time on the DL, then came back with a special protective helmet.

    Just get the damn elbow surgery already. If this facilitates that, great.

    Don’t worry. He’s young, he’s only 37, he’ll bounce back quickly.

    I taught beltran everything he knows about the disabled list and all I got was a lousy 10 percent kick back.xo, nick Johnson

    The guy should just DH. He is a terrible outfielder nowadays anyway.

      Nothing new here. That’s been the plan for about a month now, since he tried to work on a throwing program and his elbow bothered him again. Unfortunately, hitting with broken bones in your face is risky.

        Probably not much greater than hitting without broken bones in your face if you think about it.

    “I’m worried how this can affect me the rest of my career”. Did he see Cashman coming or what?
