Carlos Beltran went to visit Dr. Andrews for a second opinion on his elbow, and after hearing the results he plans on holding off on surgery for as long as he can.
According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, Andrews confirmed Beltran has a bone spur in his elbow. A source told Feinsand that Beltran plans on playing once he comes off the disabled list, but if the pain is too great, he’ll have surgery on his elbow, which could set him back for approximately two months.
The Yankees have had their share of the injury bug, with 60% of the rotation missing, an important piece to the bullpen on the DL and the position players all banged up. I imagine Joe Girardi will have something to say about this during his press conference, so if he does, I’ll write it in the pregame notes.
