This will be the first managerial experience of Beltran’s career. The Mets were clearly looking to shake things up with their managerial position, as the two finalists for the position were Beltran and Eduardo Perez, who was part of the media.
Beltran had a 20-year career and spent six and a half seasons with the Mets from 2005 to the middle of 2011. He won the 2017 World Series with the Houston Astros and was also a nine-time All-Star. The potential future Hall of Famer hit .279 with 435 home runs and 1,587 RBIs.
He takes over a team that 86-76 last season and failed to qualitfy for the playoffs.
