St. Louis Cardinals' outfielder Carlos Beltran left Sunday's game against the Cubs in the fifth inning after fouling a ball off his foot. As reported by Chad Thornburg of MLB.com, X-rays taken after the game were negative and Beltran was listed as day to day. But more X-rays were scheduled for today.  Beltran said he can walk, but wasn't sure about running yet. He hopes rest and some treatment will enable him to play on Tuesday, but said he won't rush back to play if he isn't healthy. "If I cannot perform and help the team to the level that I can help when I'm healthy, there's no reason for me to go out there," Beltran said. "If I feel I can move around well, I do want to be out there." Beltran has been plagued with minor injuries all season, but has yet to be put on the disabled list.  He has been out during May with shoulder soreness and recently pulled his left hamstring against the Phillies.  Manager Mike Matheny has given him regular days off  in attempts to keep Beltran as healthy as possible. Beltran has having a solid season with a .300 average, 20 home runs and 62 rbi's in 100 games. Last season, he played in 151 games, batted .269 with 32 home runs and 97 rbi's. For his career, Beltran has a .283 average with 354 home runs, 1,305 rbi's and 308 stolen bases.
