Carlos Beltran Passes Test Swinging A Real Bat

Carlos Beltran took dry swings with a fungo bat yesterday for the first time since receiving two cortisone shots in his elbow and took the next step today swinging with a real bat. Beltran took 15 swings from each side of the plate and came through this test without any pain or problems as well, which is great news for Beltran and the Yankees. If Beltran felt any sort of pain yesterday or today the Yankees were going to put Beltran under the knife in a mid-season surgery that would require up to 12 weeks of rehab before returning.

Beltran is far from out of the woods and will still need the surgery eventually, if not this season, but so far so good for Carlos.
