Some good news here for the 29-28 Yankees.

According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, veteran outfielder Carlos Beltran will meet up with the Yankees on Thursday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list for Thursday afternoon’s series-finale against the A’s.

Beltran has been hitting and fielding in games at extended spring training for the past several days and has experienced no major discomfort in his right elbow. He’s been on the shelf since being diagnosed with painful bone spurs in mid-May. The initial worry was the Beltran might need surgery to correct the problem, but he’s going to try to play through it.

Beltran was batting .234/.286/.430 with five home runs and 15 RBI over his first 33 games in pinstripes.

He signed a three-year, $45 million free agent contract with New York this past offseason.

    The Yankees need all the help they can get. With today’s loss, they are 29 & 29 and are 6 games back.

    Ah, he’ll actually meet them in NY, not Oakland. Not that it matters at this point. The Yankees will finish 3rd in the AL East (and I’m being generous with 3rd) with or without him. I also happen to be a 50+ year Yankee fanboy.

    …and he’ll be on the DL again by the weekend.

    Pinche Carlos,
    Did you enjoy that month off sitting on the couch watching soap operas?
    Hopefully your not to lazy to hustle down the line with all that rest.

    Kevin Long will work with him in extra batting sessions- just so he’s ready to jump out in front in order to pull the ball and hack away at any pitch thrown within 3 feet of the plate.
