Ken Rosenthal reports the news on Monday the New York Yankees on Monday have traded their outfielder Carlos Beltran to the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor league right handed pitchers Dillon Tate, Erik Swanson and Nick Green. The Yankees are not in contention to make a playoff run this year is the major reason they traded Beltran who will become a free agent at the end of the current baseball season. The Yankees will be using the three minor league pitcher they acquired from the Rangers to build up their minor league teams for the future. The Rangers are currently in first place in the American League West Division. The addition of Beltran to their lineup will add some positive chances for the team to make another playoff run in 2016. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was able to convince the management of the team to get into a sellers mode for the remainder of the current baseball season.
