Beltran hyperextended his right elbow on Monday during batting practice.

Yankees outfileder Carlos Beltran could be headed for the 15-day disable list after hyperextending his right elbow during batting practice on Monday, according to NJ.com's Brendan Kuty. The results of the MRI performed on Monday night are not yet available.

Beltran, 37, sustained the injury in the batting cages during the seventh inning of the Yankees 9-7 loss to the Mets.

The 17-year veteran is off to a slow start to his Yankees career, hitting just .234/.286/.430 with five home runs and 15 driven in over his first 140 plate appearances with the team. With Beltran out of the lineup, the Yanks will use Ichiro Suzuki and perhaps Kelly Johnson in his place.

New York recalled right hander Matt Daley from the minors to replace CC Sabathia -- who was placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. Daley gives the Yankees 13 pitchers on their 25-man roster, so if Beltran hits the DL as well, the team could recall infielder Dean Anna, or look to add another outfielder like Zoilo Almonte or prospect Slade Heathcott.
