Beltran is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

After missing games on Saturday and Sunday because of an illness, Beltran rejoined the lineup for Monday's loss to the Tigers, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. His slow start to the season may be costing him some at-bats, as Chris Young's presence in the Tuesday lineup as the starting right fielder doesn't seem to have anything to do with Beltran's health.

Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

Beltran entered Sunday's contest with just two hits in 20 at bats, and even after the productive night his slash line stands at .167/.192/.250 on the young season.

Beltran was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup, and even if he misses another game, he'll still have the entire weekend to get ready for Opening Day. He's otherwise had a surprisingly healthy spring, after undergoing elbow surgery in late September.

Beltran was initially posted on the team's lineup card, but didn't make the trip to the stadium as he deals with the illness. It doesn't appear to be anything major, so the 37-year-old should be good to go as the team's starting right fielder by Opening Day.
