Carlos Beltran reportedly joining Yankees’ front office as special advisor to GM

On the eve of their meeting with free agent Manny Machado, the New York Yankees have hired nine-time All-Star Carlos Beltran as a special advisor to general manager Brian Cashman, according to multiple reports.

Beltran, who spent three seasons with the Yankees (2014-16), shared the same agent (Dan Lozano of MVP Sports Group) as Machado.

So, what do the Yankees do if Machado doesn’t sign?

Yankees GM takes dig at Hall voting while praising George Steinbrenner

“I think he is a Hall of Famer,” Cashman said. “Whether he’s been inducted yet or not, I think it’s important. I believe that committee and the people who have the power of votes would be hard-pressed not to acknowledge this was a transformative figure in all of sports, not just baseball. I can’t imagine that he doesn’t warrant [induction], but again, it’s very political at times, this voting. Just like everything else. So there’s some powerful people that view it differently, I’m sure.

“But again, he was a transformative figure in this sport. Sometimes in a really good way and sometimes in a really difficult way. But the bottom line, he was very impactful. Both for this franchise and this industry and clearly a Hall of Famer from my viewpoint. But I don’t have a vote.”

The committee that does have a vote is comprised of members of the Hall of Fame, baseball executives and writers.
