Beltran reaches deal with Astros, $16M for 1 year

Beltran reaches deal with Astros, $16M for 1 year”

A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that free agent slugger Carlos Beltran and the Houston Astros have reached a one-year deal for $16 million.

The contract with the occasional outfielder reportedly includes a full no-trade clause in what could be Beltran's final season. The switch-hitting Beltran, who turns 40 in April, was the top player in the deadline-selling Yankees' lackluster offense this past season before being traded to the Texas Rangerson Aug. 1 forright-hander Dillon Tate and two other pitching prospects. He has bounced around to five clubs since, and is a lifetime.281/.354/.492 hitter and 9-time All-Star in nineteen major-league seasons. He was acquired by the Astros on June 24th of 2004 from the Kansas City Royals to help invoke a spark in a team that was built for a postseason run, but was struggling to stay above.500 for most of the summer.

Modi added, "When we started opening Jan Dhan accounts, poor people did not know how they would be of any use". The people are my high command and no one else, the PM also said.

The following January, Beltran signed with the New York Mets for seven years and $119 million, prompting boos every time he has returned to Minute Maid Park in the years since.

After missing out on the playoffs in 2016, the Astros have been active in the offseason.

Over the course of 333 at bats in an Astros' uniform, Beltran batted.258 with 23 home runs, 53 RBI and a.368 on-base percentage. Beltran will be going back to Houston.

The Astros have been busy since then, signing Reddick to a $52 million, four-year deal after he finished the season with the Dodgers and getting McCann in a trade with the Yankees. Along with his production on the field, Beltran has always been praised for his clubhouse influence and leadership, especially among young teammates.
