‘Sign Steel’ Beltran returns to New York M Front ‘after 3 years’

Carlos Beltran (46), who resigned shortly after being appointed manager of the New York Mets due to his involvement in the 2017 Houston Astros sign-stealing incident, returns to the field.

The New York Post, a media outlet in New York, reported on the 6th (Korean time) that Beltran had left the Yes Network to work at the New York Mets front desk.

According to this, Beltran is expected to serve as an assistant under New York Mets general manager Billy Eppler. It has been three years since he resigned as manager of the New York Mets.

Beltrán was involved in Houston’s sign stealing in 2017. However, while general manager Jeff Luhnow and head coach AJ Hinch were disciplined, Beltrán only stepped down as manager.

The prevailing speculation is that this is because Beltran was a player, unlike Renau and Hinch. It is a decision to avoid friction with the players’ union.

However, testimony has emerged that Beltrán was deeply involved in sign stealing along with Alex Cora, who worked as a Houston bench coach at the time. 안전놀이터

As a player, Beltran left a batting average of 0.279, 435 homers, 1587 RBIs, 1582 runs, 2725 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.350 OPS of 0.837 in 2586 games for 20 years as a player.

In the New York Mets, who gave up the front seat following the manager, he showed good form with a batting average of 0.280, 149 home runs, 559 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.369 and an OPS of 0.869 over seven seasons.

In 1999, he was named the American League Rookie of the Year with the Kansas City Royals and was selected as an All-Star nine times. He also won the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger 3-2 times each.

However, Beltrán lost all honor in 2017 for autograph stealing. This is expected to have a major negative impact on future Hall of Fame voting.
