Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He kicked off the scoring with a first inning shot off Jeff Samardzija, Beltran's 21st homer of the season. The veteran could well be in another uniform by this time next week, but as long as Beltran stays healthy he should keep hitting no matter where he's playing.

Beltran went 2-for-2 with an RBI single and two walks in Friday's 3-2 victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger plated Ronald Torreyes in the second for his eighth RBI of July. It's been a stellar month for Beltran in a resurgent season overall, as he's slashed .339/.382/.468 over 62 at-bats, with seven multi-hit efforts.

Beltran went 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI against the Orioles on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Not only does the 39-year-old slugger have 20 homers (one more than last season) and 60 RBI (just seven fewer than last season), he's accumulated those numbers while hitting a startling .304, his best average since he hit .325 over half a season in 2009. A trade chip at a number of deadlines past, Beltran once again looks like an appetizing option for a contender if the Yankees -- who are struggling to tread water around .500 -- decide to be sellers.

Beltran went 3-for-4 with a double in Monday's win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

It was Beltran's second straight multi-hit effort, as he's hitting .333 in July and continues to be the Yankees most reliable hitter. On the down side though, the 39-year-old -- who quickly matched his home run total from last season with 19 -- hasn't hit a long ball since June 22. Despite that, he's still filling out the rest of the boxscore regularly enough to be relied upon.

Beltran went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger's two-run single in the sixth plated Starlin Castro and Chase Headley, giving the Yankees their first runs of the game. Beltran's performance at the plate has particularly ramped up since June 1, and he currently has a four-game hitting streak while also driving in runs in three straight contests.

Beltran, who has been dealing with a lingering hamstring injury, says that he's ready to return to right field when the second half begins on Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beltran aggravated his hamstring on June 28, which moved him to the DH role for the remaining games leading up to the All-Star break. Moving back to right field will open up more options for manager Joe Girardi, who will now be able to get Alex Rodriguez more at-bats for the Yankees.

Beltran went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

He caps off a strong first half with a .299/.338/.550 slash line and he's already matched last season's home run total with 19. Age is definitely slowing the 39-year-old Beltran down though, and he seems to be settling in as the Yankees' full-time DH instead of their right fielder. Expect the team to limit his time in the outfield as best they can going forward.

Beltran (hamstring) will serve as the Yankees' designated hitter Monday against the White Sox, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. He'll occupy the third spot in the order.

EDGE Analysis

Beltran had missed the previous five games while battling the hamstring injury, and it's likely he's still limited in some capacity, as he won't be used in his usual spot in right field. That said, any lack of mobility he might be experiencing shouldn't impact him much at the plate, where Beltran has feasted all season long. He leads the Yankees in home runs (19), RBI (53) and batting average (.298).

Beltran (hamstring) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like a Monday return is a best-case scenario for Beltran, as he still cannot run on the injured leg. The Yankees are thus left thin in the outfield for their interleague series in San Diego, but Rob Refsnyder can help out in right field in a pinch.

Beltran (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Padres, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aaron Hicks will man right field in place of Beltran, who continues to nurse a bout of hamstring tightness. An MRI earlier in the week came back clean and Beltran was able to pinch hit Thursday, but he was immediately lifted for a pinch runner after drawing a walk Thursday and it's uncertain if he'll be well enough to return to the field before the end of the series. The Yankees are without the DH this weekend in San Diego.
