Beltran (oblique) is expected to start a rehab stint within the week, and could return to the majors Friday, The Westchester Journal News reports.

The plan is for Beltran to spend the All-Star break in Tampa, running bases and participating in other light drills. The outfielder was placed on the disabled list toward the beginning of July with a left oblique strain, but it appears as though he may not need to miss more than the minimum 15 days before being activated.

Beltran has been placed on the 15-day DL with a left oblique strain.

Ramon Flores was called up in a series of moves, while Beltran's placement on the DL is retroactive to July 1. In Beltran's absence, Garrett Jones will likely see an uptick in playing time in right field against right-handed pitching.

Beltran (ribs) said Wednesday that he was feeling better, YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.

Although he's being held out of the lineup, Beltran reportedly felt well enough a day after suffering the the rib-cage injury to take part in some on-field activities. He will be afforded another day of rest with the team off Thursday, but a return for Friday's series opener against Tampa Bay should not be viewed as a lock. Taylor Dugas was brought up to provide the Yankees with some outfield depth.

Beltran (ribs) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.

The Yankees have not provided an update on Beltran's condition, so consider him day-to-day for the time being. He was to be re-evaluated Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game with a rib-cage injury. Garrett Jones is starting in right field Wednesday.

Beltran left Tuesday's game with a rib cage injury and will be reevaluated Wednesday, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

It sounds like he is truly day-to-day, but it would not be surprising if the Yankees took a cautious approach with the veteran outfielder. Garrett Jones, who replaced Beltran on Tuesday, would be the likely fill-in if Beltran misses more time.

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.
