Beltran's ability in left could free space for Houston at DH

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) What designated hitter Carlos Beltran can do defensively this season will have a direct impact on what manager A.J. Hinch can try offensively.

Beltran, who will turn 40 during the season's first month, will primarily serve as the Astros' DH. He's also projected to play 30 to 40 games at a new position for him - left field.

Hinch notes that asking Beltran to play so many games in left, "might be aggressive, but he's defying every other aging curve, so why wouldn't he defy it now?"
