The Yankees are scheduled to play the Athletics on Thursday and begin a four-game series against the Royals in Kansas City on Friday.
Beltran, who is hoping to avoid surgery for a bone spur in his right elbow, took his at-bats right-handed. Asked if Beltran would be with the team by Friday, manager Joe Girardi said that "it's possible."
"I think it's fair just to see how he does these three or four days, and then you make a decision, but I don't think that's out of the question," Girardi said.
In that same game, catcher Francisco Cervelli went 3-for-5 with a double and caught five innings. Cervelli, on the 60-day disabled list with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain, said that he plans to play again in extended spring on Wednesday.
"The reports were good," Girardi said.
