According to a source from Mark Feinsand, the Yankees appear to be adding Carlos Beltran to the front office as a special advisor to Brian Cashman.
According to a source, Carlos Beltran is expected to join the Yankees as a special advisor to GM Brian Cashman. Beltran was repped by Dan Lozano of MVP Sports Group, who also reps Manny Machado. Will be interesting to see if Beltran is part of the Machado recruiting process.

Now 41, the former outfielder retired from baseball after winning a World Series with the Houston Astros in 2017, ending his 20-year career.
While Beltran is held in the highest regards as both a professional and teacher with rarely reached levels of insight into hitting success and also the willingness to share his wisdom with younger, developing players, there is possibly an even more intriguing layer to this development.
Beltran shared the same agent, Dan Lozano, as current superstar free agent Manny Machado who is subsequently set to meet with the Yankees on Wednesday. It remains to be seen whether Beltran will be included in the meeting as the Yankees attempt to recruit the services of Machado.
Stay tuned, as we will continue to update all further developments of the Beltran agreement as well as the upcoming Machado meeting.
