Fantasy Player of the Day: Mets Outfielder Carlos Beltran Homers 3 Times

Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran hasn't played a full season since 2008, and many fantasy owners, including me, stayed away from him on draft day this season. Why? Because of his injury history the last two seasons. This offseason, all we heard was that Beltran was having trouble running, and his knees wouldn't hold up playing the outfield. And maybe he won't stay healthy this season, but so far he is showing flashes of his old All-star form.

Beltran went 3-5 with 3 HRs and 6 RBIs yesterday in Colorado and is now hitting .295-.387-.590 with 8 HRs and 24 RBIs with an excellent 18-17 K/BB rate. He probably won't be stealing bases like he has in the past, but he is on pace to hit 35 HRs and drive in 100 runs. 

Beltran may not reach 35 HRs this season playing in Citifield, but he could approach 30 and drive in 90 with a solid BA. He was drafted in the 10th round of my big money NL-only draft by the same owner who drafted Lance Berkman in the 12th round. Guess where that owner sits in the standing currently? Yep. First place.
