Heyman | Yankees to interview more managerial candidates

Heyman | Yankees to interview more managerial candidates

Several reports on Tuesday said that Beltran would interview for the New York Yankees vacant manager's job, which would be his first managerial or coaching interview.

His answer, unsurprisingly, was yes. "I personally feel that when I first retired from baseball, I thought I was going to be able to spend a little time with the family, but the fact that I got the call to be interviewed, this is something that you can not turn away from it".

The Yankees had a surprisingly great 2017 season, finishing 91-71 in the regular season and taking the eventual World Series champion Astros to a seventh game in the ALCS. He understands the pressure of playing in NY, having done so with both the Yankees and Mets.

Get ready to add a new name to the New York Yankees managerial mix: Carlos Beltran.

Still, it came as no surprise that Beltran said he was "100 percent committed" to making a quick transition from player to manager. I get along well with the players, with my teammates; I've always taken that to heart, trying to impact my teammates in a positive way.

"It was important for me to do, " Beltran said of sharing the knowledge gained during three decades as a professional. "We discussed strategies, discussed how we can get better as a ballclub". It's a lot of information that you have to digest.

"I don't want to be a manager that comes to the ballpark and waits for the game to start", Beltran said. They are the only team without a manager and the winter meetings are nearly here.

Before interviewing, Beltran spoke to ex-Mets GM Omar Minaya, asking what types of questions he should expect.

"The future is bright, " Beltran said of a club that will have heavy expectations after their surprising run to Game 7 of the AL Championship Series under Joe Girardi. Beltran signed with Houston the following season, where he won it all.

"At some point in my career, I would love to have the opportunity to manage", Beltran told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand in mid-November.

And Beltran was no different, adding that advanced analytics could have helped him more if they were as readily available during his playing career. He also said he would hire a bench coach with major league managing experience. He spent over six seasons with the Mets and three more with the Yankees, spanning almost half of his 20-year career.
