Sacked from his role as manager in January 2020 | Carlos Beltran joins Mets management

(Port Saint Lucie) Carlos Beltran has joined the New York Mets as special assistant to general manager Billy Eppler. This will be his first stint with a major league team since being fired as manager of the New York roster for his involvement in the Houston Astros’ signal-stealing scandal.

Beltran had been hired on the 1er November 2019 to replace Mickey Callaway as Mets manager. The latter, however, announced his dismissal on January 16, without him having been able to lead a single game with the team.

Beltran’s firing was announced just three days after he was the only Astros player to be formally named in the Major League investigation. It determined that the Texas team broke the rules by using electronic devices to steal signals en route to winning the World Series in 2017.

Beltran spent the last campaign in an analyst role for the New York Yankees’ chain, YES.

Beltran, 45, played for the Mets from 2005-2011 and is sixth in team history in homers (149) and RBIs (559).

Beltran was named the American League’s Most Outstanding Rookie with the Kansas City Royals in 1999. He also played for the San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Yankees.
