News: Beltran has been throwing from 100 to 120 feet and may be able to return to the outfield after the team concludes its road trip, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Beltran's ongoing unavailability in the outfield prompted the team to call up Zoilo Almonte to give the team an option off the bench, but his recovery from the elbow injury hasn't seemed to change his fantasy outlook. He's been a fixture in the lineup at DH since returning from the 15-day DL in June, and has seemed to heat up offensively in the last week, homering twice and driving in five runs over his past seven games.(RotoWire, )

News: Beltran hit a two-run jack and singled Saturday. Impact: Beltran is trying to get it together. He's batting .227.(STATS, 2:02pm)
July 27, 2014
News: Beltran could be nearing a return to the outfield, Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal reports. Impact: Beltran has been delegated to DH duties for the past nine contests, but manager Joe Girardi believes a return to the outfield is not "too far off." The news doesn't mean much for fantasy owners, as Beltran will continue to see consistent at-bats as the designated hitter in the meantime. Once he does return to playing the field, the playing time of Ichiro Suzuki is the most at risk.(RotoWire, )
Sat. July 26, 2014
News: Beltran went 2-for-3 with his 12th home run of the season in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays. Impact: The homer, a two-run shot off Casey Janssen in the ninth inning, was Beltran's second in as many days, and the multi-hit effort was his fourth in his last nine games. Although he remains limited to DH duty, Beltran has been playing catch pain-free in recent days and may not be too far off from returning to the outfield.(RotoWire, )
Wed. July 23, 2014
News: Beltran played catch Monday and will throw twice more this week, the NY Post reports. Impact: With no real backup outfielders, the Yankees will want to get Beltran back in the field as quickly as possible. Beltran didn't report any soreness after throwing Monday, which is certainly encouraging, but he'll need to throw on consecutive days pain-free before being able to return.(RotoWire, )
July 20, 2014
News: Beltran will begin throwing again "soon" according to manager Joe Girardi, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Beltran has been serving as the team's DH for most of the season due to a bone spur in his elbow, but the Yankees hope he can return to the field at some point. He's reported soreness after throwing sessions previously, but if he can throw pain-free, Beltran may be available to play in the outfield again this season.(RotoWire, )
Sat. July 19, 2014
News: Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in the Yankees' 7-1 win over the Reds on Saturday. Impact: Beltran's solo shot off Alfredo Simon in the second inning got the scoring started for New York, and he went on to single and score another run in the sixth. The 37-year-old suffered two facial fractures, a broken nose and a concussion in a batting practice mishap last week, but he's shown no ill effects in two games since his return, with four hits in eight trips to the plate.(RotoWire, )
Fri. July 18, 2014
News: Beltran (concussion) has been activated from the 7-day DL and will bat sixth Friday, the New York Post's Ken Davidoff reports. Impact: He'll slot in at DH, per usual, and likely benefited from the extra days off over the break. He is symptom-free and should return to being a mainstay in the Yankees' lineup.(RotoWire, )
