Carlos Beltran has acknowledged that if he is unable to play through the pain in his right elbow, surgery is an option. The likelihood is that if he does give it a go, it won’t be for long.

The eight-time All-Star, who departed the opener of the Subway Series at Yankee Stadium on Monday night, had a cortisone shot after the game. He’s currently listed as day to day and is hoping that the pain goes away.
The New York Mets surprisingly slugged their way to their longest winning streak over the New York Yankees.
