Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran has been sidelined since May 12 because of a bone spur in his right elbow. It's been known for a while that surgery was a distinct possibility, and now Beltran is at a crossroads in his recovery. Here's the relevant tweet from MLB.com's Bryan Hoch:

Giradi went on to say that Beltran would likely be sidelined for eight to 10 weeks in the event of surgery.

Beltran, 37, is hitting .234/.286/.430 (95 OPS+) with 10 doubles, five homers and 15 RBI in 33 games this season. He signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Yankees this past offseason. He's coming off a 2013 season in which he hit 24 homers in 130 game for the NL-champion Cardinals.
