Report: Carlos Beltran Is The Yankees Main Target
The rich are planning to get richer.
Reports out of New York are that the Yankees are making slugger Carlos Beltran their number one off-season target:
Beltran is looking for a three-year deal, a source said, while the Yankees would like to sign him for only two. Several teams have thrown their respective hats in the ring for the 36-year-old, including the Red Sox, Rangers, Mariners and Royals.
The Yankees just signed top free-agent catcher Brian McCann to a five-year, $85 million contract over the weekend. Getting Beltran would be the icing on the cake.
Beltran finished with 24 homers, 84 RBI’s and batted .296 in St. Louis last season.
