Carlos Beltran RF/DH NYY 1 Month

Beltran will see a team doctor Saturday to determine whether or not to go ahead with season-ending elbow surgery, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Beltran has been expecting surgery for some time now, but it was originally planned for after the season. Reports have indicated that team officials suggested he go ahead with the surgery sooner than that, however, so his status for the rest of the season is up in the air at the moment.

Beltran is not in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Beltran returned to the lineup Friday and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. He's expected to undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow once the season is over, though he could be sent for the procedure a bit early if the Yankees are mathematically eliminated in the days ahead.

Beltran (elbow) remains out of the lineup for Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Renewed soreness in Beltran's troublesome elbow resulted in his scratch from Wednesday's lineup, and he's now set to sit out a third straight game. The Yankees are still alive in the Wild Card hunt, but it wouldn't be a surprise if they sent Beltran for surgery once officially eliminated.
