Astros Interested in Reunion With Carlos Beltran


According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the Houston Astros are extremely interested in a reunion with free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran.

Beltran is coming off a year in which he had a substantial amount of success. In 99 games with the New York Yankees, Beltran hit .304 with 22 HR’s and 64 RBI’s before being traded to the Texas Rangers at the deadline. With the Rangers, he hit .280 with 7 HR’s and 29 RBI’s in 52 games. A total of .295 with 29 HR’s and 93 RBI’s was good enough for the veteran to be named to his ninth All-Star game.

The 40 year old outfielder certainly doesn’t have the speed or range in the outfield that he once had, but he could make for an excellent designated hitter. With the Astros set to let former catcher Jason Castro walk in free agency, the plan is to move last year’s DH Evan Gattis behind the plate. Going into his age 40 season, Beltran definitely isn’t capable of playing in an outfield position every single day, but as he showed last year he has the pop to still be a valuable DH.

Beltran played 90 games for the Astros in 2004 after being traded from Kansas City to Houston in June. He hit .258 with 23 HR’s and 53 RBI’s. He really excelled during the postseason that year hitting .435 with 8 HR’s and 14 RBI in 12 games as the Astros lost to the Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS.
