It's been 2 steps forward, 1 step back for the Yankees with respect to their various injury situations lately. Actually, 1 step forward, 2 steps back is more accurate. Carlos Beltran and his right elbow have responded well to early hitting activities and the team could get him back in the lineup by week's end. Mark Teixeira and his wrist haven't been so lucky, as he's still feeling pain and stiffness and received another cortisone injection after leaving Saturday's game early. With all that left-handed uncertainty and a painful-to-watch lack of pop in the lineup, is it time to seriously consider signing Kendrys Morales?
