Beltran scratched from lineup with sore elbow


I won’t be around for the Yankees game tonight (I’m still going to do the Yankees recap) so I guess you could consider this a very condensed Yankees pregame post. Nothing much is happening, except for injury news on Carlos Beltran and Masahiro Tanaka.

–Carlos Beltran was scratched from the Yankees lineup due to feeling soreness in his elbow. Beltran explained the soreness isn’t from him being in the outfield, but he feels it when he’s swinging the baseball bat. In the meantime, Beltran will see the Yankees doctor and Joe Girardi hopes he’ll have his right fielder back within the next day or two.

–There’s even more good news for Masahiro Tanaka: he threw a 35-pitch second bullpen today and he said all was good. Joe Girardi thinks Tanaka’s next step could be live batting practice but it’s also possible that he does one more bullpen session before he moves onto batting practice.

— If you’re going to the Yankees game tonight, it’s Joe Girardi Bobblehead night. I’m not going to lie: I kind of wanted one.

    The Yankees decision to play Beltran in RF is the epitome of bad management. Like Prado playing RF, Drew playing 2B, Tanaka not being rested properly, the list goes on.

    Not being able to beat Houston at Yankees stadium is a joke. We really shouldn't be in playoffs .
    We can't blame are record on starters going down. Backups did great job and if we hit a lick we might be string pretty ,but This lineup just never came together.
    We should be managed like a NL team because have no power but instead we still look like we are waiting for 3 run homer that is never gonna come.
    Bottom line , We need to walk teams best players when 1st base is open, hit and run ,bunt and steal.
    Just venting my frustrations ,but speak the truth
