Beltran of course was recently playing in the past World Series and was a significant factor in getting the Red birds to the World Series. Carlos Beltran would add a power bat and a high batting average into the Royals lineup. Beltran hit for 24 homeruns and 84 runs batted in this past season with a batting average of .296. The Royals are looking to keep their winning ways this next year.
