NEW YORK (AP) – Carlos Beltran would consider waiving his no-trade clause if the New York Mets approach him with a deal.
The 33-year-old was limited to 64 games this year and 81 the previous season because of right knee injuries. He is owed $18.5 million in the final season of his contract.
Beltran is preparing for the opening next year of his high school with a baseball academy attached in Puerto Rico, and new Mets general manager Sandy Alderson plans to visit him this weekend.
A five-time All-Star, Beltran says he wants to finish his career with the Mets, but if the team wants to trade him “I have to listen.” He also would consider a shift to a corner outfield spot with the Mets but prefers to stay in center.
Trade him or keep him?
