Beltran is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Sunday off days have become the norm for Beltran as he nears the end of his career, and it's possible that once Jacoby Ellsbury returns from the DL, Beltran could pick up rest even more frequently. Chris Young has been one of the Yankees' hottest hitters over the last week, and if he's able to continue to excel, it may be hard to justify using Beltran over him once Ellsbury is activated.

Beltran went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles in Monday's loss to the Phillies.

Beltran continues to make up for a brutal April, as a 17-for-53 (.321) campaign thus far in June has raised his average to .260 for the first time all season. The 38-year-old seems to be hitting for a bit more power of late too, as he's homered three times in his last four starts.

Beltran is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

Beltran is receiving a well-deserved day off after belting his sixth and seventh home runs in Saturday's blowout victory. The 38-year-old switch-hitter has started five straight games in right field, but will give way to Garrett Jones for the Sunday afternoon contest.

Beltran homered twice and drove in three runs Saturday in a 14-0 blowout of the Tigers.

He victimized Detroit starter Alfredo Simon and reliever Ian Krol in back-to-back innings. Beltran is starting to warm up, having homered three times in the last three games and walked in four consecutive contests, lifting his OPS over .700 for the first time all season. We're still looking for more from the one-time star, but he's showing that something's left in the tank.

Beltran went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk Thursday against the Marlins.

Since missing a game with a minor hamstring ailment, Beltran's hit in three straight. Unfortunately, he seems to be stuck in an on-again, off-again pattern in which he never quite gets into a groove, and thus the veteran outfielder is putting up some of the worst numbers of his career.

Beltran (hamstring) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Miami, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Beltran was held out of the lineup the last two games because of a minor hamstring injury. He struck out as a pinch hitter in Monday's loss to the Marlins, but he's shown signs of life in the wake of a disastrous April.

Beltran pinch-hit in Monday's loss to the Marlins -- striking out in his only at bat -- but is dealing with a minor hamstring issue according to manager Joe Girardi.

Beltran has been held out of the lineup two days in a row, though it doesn't appear to be a particular serious issue. Girardi indicated that he expected Beltran would be back in the lineup Tuesday, but it may be worth checking back in to confirm.

Beltran is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Beltran has played the last six games since returning from a foot injury, so it appears to be the case where manager Joe Girardi is just giving the veteran outfielder a rest. Garrett Jones will assume the start in right field in place of Beltran.

Beltran (foot) is in the lineup Saturday playing right field and hitting sixth against the Angels.

He missed the last two games with the foot issue, but considering he is returning to the outfield it seems he is over the ailment for now. After a really slow start to the season, Beltran hit .298 with four home runs in May and reestablished himself as a useful option, especially in deeper leagues.

Beltran will be held out of the lineup Friday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Beltran continues to deal with a sore foot after fouling a ball off of it during Tuesday's win over Seattle. Manager Joe Girardi said it doesn't look to be anything serious, and the hope is that Beltran will be good to go Saturday.
