Carlos Beltran blasted a two-run homer off Anibal Sanchez, powering the Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Tigers in Grapefruit League action on Friday.
The third-inning bomb was an absolute no-doubter to right field. The 36-year-old outfielder has remained relatively healthy over the past two seasons, and could see an even larger resurgence playing half of his games in the extremely hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium.
Hiroki Kuroda delivered an impressive performance in Friday's Grapefruit League victory over the Tigers, striking out five in 2 2/3 scoreless innings of work.
The 39-year-old hurler walked one and allowed just one base hit. Already looking like he's in mid-season form, Kuroda has now notched 4 2/3 shutout innings this spring, while posting a tidy 7/0 K/BB ratio. He doesn't quite get the strikeouts of most upper-echelon fantasy starters, but makes for a fine third or fourth option in mixed leagues.
