St. Louis Cardinals OF Carlos Beltran (toe) played six-plus innings Tuesday, March 26, and had a single, two walks and a stolen base. He expects his fractured right small big toe to give him pain for some time, but he didn't have any limitations Tuesday. "He promised me that he was fine," manager Mike Matheny said afterward. "He ran really hard on that first ground ball and turned around and smiled at me. I think he was happy to get back in there. My concern wasn't as much (hitting) as watching his movements. He was running well." Beltran plans to play on his injured toe as long as the pain is tolerable.
Fantasy Tip: You can't like the fact that Beltran is already injured heading into the season opener if you own him. However, he appears fine, and the team wouldn't be letting him play if it was a major concern. Oscar Taveras is still in camp for a reason, though, and he might be ready to step in if Beltran needs time to rest. Taveras is worth selecting in the late rounds in mixed formats.
