Carlos Beltrán had a dream retirement by winning the World Series with Houston last season, but right after the triumph, the rumors started to pop up regarding the future of the Puerto Rican, even though he will not be playing anymore.
It is reported that the 40 year-old was interviewed by the Yankees for the manager spot after former coach's contract, Joe Girardi, expired. At the end of the day, the job finished in the hands of Aaron Boone.
But according to Marc Craig of the Athletic, in the reality, the Yankees offered Beltrán a directive spot, but the former player decided to reject the offer, because he wanted to spend some time with his family, with only a job as a team manager would make him reconsider coming back to the game.
The slugger had a career average of .279, with 435 HR's, 1587 RBI's and 2725 hits. He played for the Mets, Giants, Royals, Cardinals, Yankees, Rangers and Astros, being a 9 time All-Star and the American League Rookie of the year in 1999.
