Report: Beltran running without brace
February, 18, 2011

Terry Collins gave a not-to-veiled hint Friday that if the decision were unilateral, the manager would put Beltran in right field right away. But Beltran will be given first dibs at center field, and if it's not working out, he'll then move to right field midway through spring training.
By all accounts, Beltran feels good now. Still, the wear and tear of a season, coupled with his chronic knee trouble, would suggest the issue is not completely behind him. Beltran did have to stop playing because of discomfort with a week remaining last season.
