Carlos Beltran is leaving his post in the New York Yankees broadcast booth and is making his way back to the New York Mets in an undisclosed front office role.
The New York Post broke the story about Beltran. The former Mets All-Star center fielder will work under General Manager Billy Eppler.

The news comes three years after the Mets tried and failed to make Carlos Beltran their manager. Beltran was hired in November of 2019 to take over as skipper, but was quickly canned when he became linked to the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. The Mets pivoted and went with Luis Rojas instead for what would turn into a COVID-19 shortened 60-game season in 2020.
Beltran was out of the game for the most the past three seasons, but re-emerged last year as a broadcast in-game analyst for the YES Network.
