He needs to be on the DL.
Putting him 8th only moves the black hole down in the order and creates a situation where the pitcher is leading off more.
Matt Carpenter is a far better hitter than Beltran is right now and isn't much worse as an OFer. Beltran's crap - absolute, unadulterated, unfiltered crap. He's worthless in every way, shape and form. He can't run, he can't hit and he won't take a goddamn walk.
And of course Matheny's answer to this problem was to move him up in the order.
Get him off the !@#$ing field. We don't have time to hope he just comes out of an 8 week long funk at this point.
