Carlos Beltran, who was the instigator of the ‘sign stealing’ of the Houston Astros, who won the World Series in 2017, joins the New York Mets as a frontman. It’s been 3 years since the supervisory position was misfired.
The US ‘New York Post’ reported on the 6th (Korean time) that Carlos Beltran would join the New York Mets as a frontman. “The Mets will hire the former star center fielder to join the front office, where he will work under general manager Billy Eppler,” the media cited sources.
Beltrán was drafted by the Kansas City Royals with the 49th overall pick in the second round of the 1995 draft. Beltran first stepped on the big league stage in 1998, three years after joining the club, and played for 20 years with the Houston Astros, New York Mets, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers. 메이저놀이터
In terms of his active career alone, Beltrán was a tremendous player. From 2001 to 2009, Beltran recorded double-digit home runs for 9 consecutive years, participating in 2,586 games in a total of 2,725 hits, 435 home runs, 1,587 RBIs, 1,582 runs, 312 stolen bases, and a batting average of 0.279 OPS of 0.835.
Beltran played in 156 games in 1999 with 194 hits, 22 home runs, 108 RBIs, 112 points, 27 steals, a batting average of 0.293 OPS and 0.791, winning the Rookie of the Year title and being named an All-Star 9 times (2004-2007, 2009, 2011-2013, 2016). done. And he won two Silver Sluggers (2006, 2007) and three Gold Gloves (2006-2008), and in 2017, just before his retirement, he experienced his first World Series victory in Houston.
Beltran as a player is a ‘legend’ without disagreement, but his recent image is not very good. It is because it was revealed that Houston was the instigator of the ‘sign stealing’ in the year that Houston lifted the World Series championship trophy in 2017. Beltrán was appointed as the new head coach of the Mets prior to the 2020 season, but due to a sign-stealing scandal, he was forced to put down the baton without playing a single game.
It’s unclear what role Beltran will play with the Mets. But the Mets’ feelings for Beltrán appear to be sincere. “The New York Post” said, “Beltran’s hiring comes three years after his job as manager failed. He was fired after being involved in Houston’s sign-stealing scandal.” I was considered as an assistant hitting coach.”
