Description: Carlos Beltran will play the field for the first time since May 10 on Saturday, according to Sweeny Murti of WFAN.
Insight: Beltran has been relegated to a DH role due to an elbow injury, but he's been feeling much better. He's gone 1-for-18 in his last five games, but moving back to right field could help him focus on something other than his hitting struggles. His return to the field will allow manager Joe Girardi to use the DH to get his veterans a half day off down the stretch.

Insight: While taking batting practice, Beltran hit a ball off the bottom of the screen and it bounced back and hit him. The injury just about sums up the day the Yankees have had -- Masahiro Tanaka was also placed on the disabled list with elbow soreness and Brett Gardner was scratched with an abdominal strain. Over his last 40 games, Beltran has hit .170 (25-for-147) with four homers, 15 RBI and a .542 OPS. He hasn't played the field since May 11 because of a bone spur in his elbow and he's been dealing with swelling in his right knee. He had surgery on the same knee in 2010.

Description: Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran has a .340 lifetime average against Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco (16-for-47).
Insight: Beltran hasn't been close to what the Yankees expected him to be this season, but he's a good enough hitter to turn things around quickly. Though he's struck out 11 times against Nolasco, he also has a home and 16 hits against him, so there's a chance he has a productive afternoon.

Description: Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran (elbow) has been activated from the disabled list ahead of New York's game against Oakland. He'll bat fifth and DH.

In the first year of his three-year, $45 million deal with the Yanks, Beltran has struggled, posting a .234 batting average and .715 OPS in 128 at-bats. Still, if he can remain healthy he could provide a significant boost to fantasy offenses.
