Yankees Grab Carlos Beltran Just Hours After Cano, Granderson Depart
It didn’t take long for the New York to get to work on a big free agent splash after losing Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson.
Just hours after reports surfaced that both players had agreed to contracts with other clubs, the pinstripes snagged the clutch hitting and defensively sound Carlos Beltran for three years and a reported $45 million, according to USAToday.
Beltran is the second big name free agent outfielder the Yankees signed this week, having already purchased former Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury for seven years and $153 million.
It was also reported Friday that Hiroki Kuroda has re-signed a one year deal to stay in the Bronx.
