Quick hits: Shawn Kelley to the DL, Beltran may need surgery


The Yankees have Shawn Kelley on disabled list and have called up OF Zoilo Almonte. I guess Kelley’s back isn’t better after all.

Also, Carlos Beltran is having elbow problems, more specifically a bone spur that may need to be surgically removed. For now he’s had a cortisone shot and will know for sure if surgery is needed in 2-3 days.

It has gotten to the point where you can’t even get upset anymore when you hear about DL stints and possible surgery. I just laugh now because it is completely ridiculous.
