Carlos Beltran (46), who was the instigator of the ‘sign-stealing’ scandal caused by the Houston Astros in the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) in 2017, is expected to return to the New York Mets.
The New York Post reported on the 6th (Korean time) that Beltran will enter the front desk as an assistant general manager of the Billy Eppler Mets.
Beltran, who played 20 seasons in the major leagues, is a former star player with a career batting average of 0.279, 435 homers, and 1,587 RBIs.
He was also selected as an All-Star nine times.
After retiring from active duty, he was appointed manager of the New York Mets in November 2019, but Houston’s ‘sign stealing’ scandal broke out shortly thereafter.
When Houston won the World Series in 2017, it was revealed that they systematically stole the opposing team’s sign, and Beltran, who was a veteran player, was said to have played a leading role. 스포츠토토
In the end, Beltrán resigned after two months as Mets manager.
However, at the time, the Mets team wrapped him up, saying, “We don’t want Beltrán’s baseball career to end.”
After resigning as manager, Beltrán worked as a commentator at a Yankees-hosted broadcasting company, and returned to the Mets front desk after three years.
