Carlos Beltran is working out again.
From Adam Rubin of ESPN New York comes word that the newly converted right fielder ran 100-foot sprints four times in camp on Sunday afternoon and also took batting practice. He even launched a home run off former bench coach Dave Jauss while hitting from the left side of the plate.
Beltran was given a cortisone shot in his sore left knee two days ago and remains questionable for the start of the regular season. He underwent major surgery on his right knee in January of 2010.
Beltran has only appeared in one Grapefruit League game to date and made three plate appearances. Most everyday players like to get between 60 and 70 reps against live pitching during the spring schedule.
