Mets, Beltran mutually agree to part ways

Carlos Beltran speaks at his unveiling as New York Mets manager

Last year, the city that Enron once called home found itself at the center of another scandal steeped in deceit courtesy of the Houston Astros, who became the target of an Major League Baseball investigation following an explosive report from The Athletic that alledged they'd come up with a complex system to steal signs and relay them to batters during their 2017 World Series run. Beltran was the only player named in the document, confirming that he was the veteran player referenced in The Athletic's original report.

Mets officials have been discussing Beltran's status moving forward, according to's Anthony DiComo, who adds that the team intends to announce a decision regarding Beltran's future before his scheduled appearance at Mets Fanfest on January 25. "I wish the entire organization success in the future". Along with Hinch, Alex Cora and the Boston Red Sox mutually made a decision to part ways on Tuesday.

Carlos Beltran's tenure as manager of the New York Mets ended before he even managed a game.

"We believe that Carlos was honest and forthcoming with us", Wilpon and Van Wagenen said in a statement. They gave a few details about what had taken place since Beltran had been hired, and how the Mets and Beltran eventually came to this decision. We are confident that this will not be the final chapter in his baseball career. Yahoo's Tim Brown reports (via Twitter) that Beltran has informed the Mets he feels it is best if he steps down.

But Beltran was one of the key players in the Astros' scheme to tip off hitters by stealing the opponent's pitching signs, according to MLB's investigation, which was issued this week.

AP Wire Services were used in this report.

In light of Beltran being the only player named in the report, Van Wagenen told the media that he had met with the commissioner's office on Wednesday to gain more clarity on Beltran's role in the sign-stealing. Beltran finished up his 20-season Major League Baseball career in 2017, walking away after winning the World Series with Houston.

"We met with Carlos last night and again this morning and agreed to mutually part ways".
