Beltran told multiple outlets earlier this
month that he would be interested in interviewing for the job.
It will be the 40-year-old's first coaching or managerial
interview of any kind.
The Yankees' position became available after Joe Girardi was
dismissed on Oct. 26. Girardi concluded a four-year, $16 million
contract with the Yankees, who fell one win shy of advancing to
the World Series -- losing Game 7 of the American League
Championship Series to Beltran and the Houston Astros.
Beltran announced his retirement earlier this month after the
Astros won the World Series. He will be the sixth person to
interview for the Yankees' managerial opening, joining Yankees
bench coach Rob Thomson, former Cleveland Indians and Seattle
Mariners manager Eric Wedge, San Francisco Giants bench coach
Hensley Meulens, Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Chris
Woodward and ESPN analyst Aaron Boone.
Beltran played parts of three seasons in the Bronx from 2014-16,
batting .270 with 56 homers and 180 RBIs.
A nine-time All-Star, Beltran batted .279 with 435 homers, 2,725
hits, 1,587 RBIs and 1,582 runs scored in 2,586 games while
playing for seven different teams. He began his career with the
Kansas City Royals in 1998 before playing for the New York Mets,
St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers and Giants.
