SF Giants Rumors

Carlos Beltran Officially Traded To San Francisco Giants

By Bryan Rose

According to the MLB Network, New York Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran has been traded to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for pitching prospect Zack Wheeler. The Mets will send a significant amount of cash to the Giants in the deal as well (early rumor is $4 million) which will need approval from the MLB Commissioner’s office.

I’ll continue to update this post as the final details of the trade emerge and I’ll have a breakdown of the trade as well.

But for now, per MLB Network, the trade is official pending the Commissioner’s approval of the finances.

Beltran currently sports a .289/15/65 triple slash, with a near .400 on base percentage.

Update: Beltran will bat third and play right field – Sandoval to bat cleanup with Nate moving to left (in what seems to be a platoon with Ross). Yeah, don’t fight with the defensive logic there – you’ll lose. My eye is already black.
