Beltran out with tightness in leg
HOUSTON -- Carlos Beltran felt tightening in the back of his leg near the hamstring area during workouts Thursday, when he was out of the starting lineup against the Pirates but did pinch-hit, and he was out of the lineup against the Astros on Friday.

"He said it wasn't that big of a deal and could go," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "But we're going to have to be careful this month. We've got one off-day, so we're really going to have to be searching and listening to when these guys need a day [off]. I think we all know that keeping them healthy is the key."

Matheny said Beltran would likely play Saturday.

"Yeah, if he feels the same," he said. "We'll reevaluate tomorrow."
