NEW YORK (WFAN) -- After a few years away, Carlos Beltran is set to be back in pinstripes.

His playing days are over, but Beltran has been looking to get into the management side of the game since hanging up his cleats. The future hall-of-famer is now reportedly getting his chance.

According to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, Beltran is expected to join the Yankees as a special adviser to general manager Brian Cashman.

Cashman has spoken highly about Beltran before. He is incredibly well respected throughout the game after putting together quite the accomplished career. In his 20 years in the league, Beltran made nine All-Star games, won three Gold Gloves, won the American League Rookie of the Year, and won a World Series championship with the Houston Astros.

Beltran played for the Yankees from 2014 through 2016, but his experience in New York isn’t limited to the Bronx. The 41-year-old was a Met from 2005 until he was traded to San Francisco in 2011.

Interestingly enough, the Puerto Rican slugger is represented by the same agent who represents Manny Machado. Beltran could play a role if the Yankees do decide to pursue Machado’s signature.

The Yankees interviewed Beltran in 2017 when they were looking for a new manager, but they eventually gave the job to Aaron Boone.
