Beltran went 2-for-4 with his fourth homer and three RBI in Saturday's win over Oakland.

After an atrocious April, Beltran's been much improved at the plate in May, having hit safely in 17 of his last 18 games. However, with the 38-year-old outfielder's speed long gone and power fading, he's mostly of use in deeper fantasy formats.

Beltran is out of the lineup Sunday due to flu-like symptoms, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

While it initially appeared Beltran's absence was a simple day of rest, an illness has now been pegged as the cause. Assuming the flu doesn't turn into anything worse, it shouldn't cause him to miss too much time. Garrett Jones will start in right field and sixth for the Yankees on Sunday.

Beltran extended his hitting streak to 13 games on Saturday, going 1-for-5 with a solo home run.

It's just his third home run of the season. The hitting streak has boosted his slash line for May to .301/.316/.521 though, a far cry from his .162/.216/.265 April, and rumors of Beltran's demise as a hitter may have been exaggerated.

Beltran is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Beltran has actually been hitting well lately as he's riding a nine-game hitting streak that has brought his average up to .234, but he'll take a seat Tuesday as the Yankees face left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Chris Young will get the start in right field and bat third in his stead.

Beltran went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's win over the Royals.

After a miserable first month, Beltran has actually been hitting well in May as he sports a eight game hitting streak and a .326 average in the month. He's also got his only two home runs of the season and seven RBI during the recent hitting streak, so while his overall numbers still aren't great, Beltran does appear to potentially be turning a corner.
