Beltran went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Blue Jays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Beltran plated the game's first two runs, including a solo blast off the Jays' R.A. Dickey to give him his 10th homer of the season. We're just over a quarter of the way through the current campaign, but Beltran already has more than half of last season's home run total (19). The 39-year-old has had more opportunities of late to rest his legs while serving as the Yankees' primary DH, but he'll move back to a regular role in the outfield once Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) returns from the DL, which could happen over the weekend.

Beltran was the Yankees offense in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Mariners, as he went 4-for-5 with a solo homer and two RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 38-year-old slugger has been the Yankees' most dependable offensive player in the early going, so it's only fitting that he served as their sole source of run production Saturday. Beltran launched a solo shot off reliever Nick Vincent in the seventh, and also belted a pair of doubles off CC Sabathia. He's now reached base safely in six straight games, and is now slashing a .351/.368/.649 line through the first 10 games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran slugger connected on a one-out, two-run shot in the fifth that gave the Yankees an 8-2 lead. The 19-year veteran now has two multi-hit games on the season, and is expected to once again serve as a solid source of power after a 19-homer season at age 38 in 2015.
