Carlos Beltrán, former outfielder and Mets manager, has been hired by the YES Network as a part-time game analyst. He will call 36 Yankees games in the 2022 season.

This is Beltrán’s first big-time return to baseball since being fired by the Mets in 2020. After his name was tied to Houston’s 2017 sign-stealing scandal, the Mets and Beltrán mutually decided to part ways before he managed a single game.

In addition to his new role with the YES Network, Beltrán will appear on next year’s Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.
