Carlos Beltran to Retire

  • Pin It

After a spectacular 20 year career in Major League Baseball, Carlos Beltran announced his retirement on Monday.

Beltran finally won his first World Series a few weeks ago after the Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games to take their first World Series title in franchise history. Carlos had been close on numerous occasions of winning a title, but it took until his 20th and final season to get it.

Beltran has the borderline Hall of Fame type numbers, but his great relationship with the media and the fact he has always been known as a stand-up type guy may help his case for a Hall of Fame bid when he is eligible in 2022.

His final career totals:

  • Nine time All-Star
  • Three time Gold Glove winner
  • Two time Silver Slugger
  • Rookie of the Year award in 1999
  • .279 Batting Average
  • .350 On-Base Percentage
  • 435 Home Runs
  • 1,587 RBI’s
  • 312 Stolen Bases
  • 565 Doubles

Add in his .307 career postseason average and 16 career postseason home runs and that is quite an impressive stat line and overall career.

He’s a Hall of Famer in my book.
