Beltran’s signing with the Mets
NEW YORK — Carlos Beltran is on the verge of following Pedro Martinez to the New York Mets.
A day after the All-Star outfielder let the deadline to re-sign with Houston pass, he reached a preliminary agreement Sunday night on a $119 million, seven-year contract with the Mets that includes an $11 million signing bonus.
“We have good-faith terms, and we’re working toward the final agreement,” Beltran’s agent, Scott Boras said. “We’re near the end of the it, but not quite complete.”
The Mets, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2000, just last month lured Martinez from the Boston Red Sox with a $53 million, four-year deal.
Beltran was due to come to New York for a physical Monday. The sides intended to announce the deal Tuesday — the last day before a change in federal rules makes signing bonuses subject to increased taxes.
Beltran, who helped Houston come within a victory of its first World Series last year, will became the 10th player in baseball history to agree to a deal worth $100 million or more.
