The Houston Astros on Saturday have reached a one year, $16 million dollar contract with former Texas Rangers outfielder Carlos Beltran.Beltran, 39, has played in the Major Leagues with the Kansas City Royals, Houston Astros, New York Mets, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers since he made his debut in the Majors in 1998 with Royals.The New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox were outbid by the Astros for the services of the 39 year old outfielder that will be useful for the Astros as an outfielder and designated hitter since the American League does have a designated hitter rule.Beltran despite his age will be a very valuable player as a mentor to the younger players on the Astros during the 2017 Major League Baseball season. The Astros are paying him his huge salary for one season where his batting average of .295 with 29 home runs and 93 runs batted in with the Rangers in the 2016 baseball season impressed the crosstown rivals of the Rangers.News source is Rotoworld.com and the image is from Google.com
