Reporter Park Sang-hyun = Carlos Beltran, who almost took office as manager of the New York Mets just three years ago, joins the New York Mets as the frontman.
MLB.com, which delivers news of the American professional baseball Major League (MLB), reported on the 6th (Korean time) that Beltran, who played an active role as a game analyst and commentator on the New York Yankees-specialized broadcasting YES Network last year, will join the front of the New York Mets. 스포츠토토
There hasn’t been an official announcement from the New York Mets yet, and it’s unknown what position he’ll fill, but given that Beltrán took over as special assistant to New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman in 2019, it’s likely he’ll fill a similar position.
Beltrán was a star during his active career. Beltrán, who made his MLB debut with the Kansas City Royals in 1998, went through the Houston Astros, New York Mets, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers. He won the American League Rookie of the Year award in 1999 and was selected as an All-Star nine times. From 2006 to 2008 he won the Gold Glove three years in a row and the Silver Slugger in 2006 and 2007.
2017 is considered to be Beltrán’s final season and the most spectacular period. After 2013, he led Puerto Rico to second place in the World Baseball Classic and led Houston to the top of the World Series.
But Houston’s World Series victory caught Beltrán off guard. Beltrán signed a three-year contract with the New York Mets in November 2019 and took over as manager following Mickey Callaway, but the contract was terminated in January of the following year as Houston’s ‘sign-stealing scandal’ broke out.
