FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWES: YANKS SIGNING OF CARLOS BELTRAN "IMMINENT"

                                                               

According to a team source connected to the New York Yankees front office, the team appears "imminent" in their signing of free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran.  After already signing catcher Brian McCann, the Yankees quickly began the process of securing Beltran's services while the whole Robinson Cano drama continues to boil in the background.  Beltran is looking for a three-year deal while the Yankees want to stick for two but the source said "they will work it out one way or another." 

Analysis:  Here we go.  The Yankees are double-dipping in some 30-and over veterans early in free agency and Cano himself has got to start wondering if he fits in the plans the way they are throwing around money.  This move has been hot since the start of free agency and it looks like it could be done very soon.  Beltran would get a nice ballpark boost in leaving St. Louis and also have the opportunity to DH.  If he does sign on the dotted line, I would sign off on one more year of outfielder 2 production as far as Beltran's worth in fantasy baseball.
