If a trade were to occur, it would be interesting to see who the Mets would ask for in return.
Most likely, Carlos Beltran would only be a two-month rental player for the Yankees.
Therefore, the team may be reluctant to deal a high-level prospect.
There’s little chance Jesus Montero, Austin Romine, Dellin Betances, Manny Banuelos or Andrew Brackman would be moved in a deal for Beltran.
If that’s the case, the Yankees would have to put together a decent package of mid-level prospects to get a deal done.
The Mets may be better off seeking another deal for Beltran, who might be a hot commodity around the trade deadline if he keeps up his hot hitting.
