Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Beltran will be sidelined, so owners should look to stash him on their bench for now.

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (face) suffered two small facial fractures after a batted ball caromed off an L screen and hit him in the face Wednesday, July 9.

"Hopefully tomorrow it will get better and I could be back soon, but I don't know what the team's going to do. With the concussion things, teams take that serious. Honestly, I don't feel like I have that. But at the end of the day, it's not my decision."
Fantasy Tip: This is an unfortunate incident for a team that can not afford anymore injuries to their key players. Beltran will likely be day-to-day for now.
