Former Royal Carlos Beltran is a candidate for the Yankees’ manager’s job. Beltran, who began his career with the Royals and played with the Cardinals as well, retired after the season and winning a World Series with the Astros. Beltran will be the sixth candidate to interview for the job after Joe Girardi was fired in October after 10 years in the Yankees’ dugout.
Multiple outlets report the Yankees will meet with Beltran on Wednesday. The team has already interviewed several candidates including bench coach Rob Thomson, former Indians and Mariners manager Eric Wedge, and ESPN analyst Aaron Boone.
Beltran hit .279 with 435 home runs and 1,587 RBI over 2,586 career games.
