Carlos Beltran Open to Changing Positions, Waving His No-Trade Clause

Sandy Alderson is still meeting with managerial candidates — the current front-runners, at least according to Adam Rubin? Terry Collins, Clint Hurdle, and Bob Melvin — but Alderson has another important face-to-face scheduled for this weekend: One with Carlos Beltran. Beltran said he didn't know what exactly would be discussed when the two chat tomorrow in Puerto Rico at a fund-raiser for a baseball academy Beltran is building there, but on a conference call with reporters yesterday, Beltran said that while he would like to finish his career with the Mets, he'd listen if they asked him to waive his no-trade clause. (He's owed $18.5 million next year.) He also said he still believes he can play center field, but would be open to discussing a change to a corner outfield position if the organization wants to proceed in that direction. Your move, Sandy. [Bats/NYT, NYP]
