I just got off the phone with a friend…yup, my source. That rumor about Carlos Beltran possibly coming back to the Yankees?  It’s very real.

Now, we’ve seen the report about Beltran and Yankees and a possible reunion.  Here’s that story. Hardball Talk quotes Jon Heyman:

“New York is in the market for a designated hitter. There are a lot of options out there in that regard. To that end, Jon Heyman reports that they’re “seriously looking” at Carlos Beltran…”

But there’s more to it.  For 1, the 1 year deal they would like to offer would ultimately not only be it for Beltran and his baseball career, but it’s a much cheaper deal than signing Edwin Encarnacion, and, as my source tells me “Beltran and the Yankees have an understanding that he wants to end his career a New York Yankee.  While the trade to the Rangers was business, ultimately the Yankees know Beltran can help their club as a DH, and in the end, he gets to finish his career in the Bronx.”

And that’s the nugget and the only nugget I have for you. But I can tell you this… no one else has it.  Thank god for my buddy.  You gotta love BYB right about now…

Now… will this deal with Beltran happen?  Ultimately it’s about the 2 sides getting together the try and hammer out a deal. But there’s a humanity element in this deal, and ultimately, while Beltran won’t come SUPER cheap for his services, a one year deal with Carlos works out a helluva lot better than 4 years, $55 million with Edwin…. you know what I mean?  After all, don’t forget, the Yankees are stockpiling money for a Ardolis Chapman reunion too.

Stay tuned…
