The New York Yankees are looking at free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran. Beltran, who spent last season with the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants, would replace Nick Swisher in the Bronx.
Swisher has a $10.25 million option that the Yankees must decide to pick up or decline by November 1st. The Yankees must decide whether to pick up Swisher's option or go after Beltran as they cannot have both players.
The Yankees have a list of potential right field replacements for Nick Swisher and Beltran's name is the only one publicly known. In Carlos Beltran's time in New York with the Mets, he has had up and down seasons and not living up to his contract after his breakout season with the Houston Astros in 2004.
