It's all about service days, though. They could bring him up for, say, 2 weeks to give Beltran time to get healthy, then send him back down. Just would mean they'd have to leave him down for 2-3 weeks longer down the road.
The deadline for the extra year of control is a moving target, but early MAy (first two weeks) is likely safe. If they brought him up for two weeks now, they could always send him back down and wait until the end of May to call him up.
Not the only option, though. Adams up and to 1B and Craig to RF seems sensible.
