Carlos Beltran would like to stay in St. Louis beyond 2013

Carlos Beltran is under contract through this season. But he’d like to stay in St. Louis:

 

That’s well and good, but Cardinals prospect Oscar Tavares hit .321/.380/.572 at Double-A at the age of 20 in 2012, so he’s likely slated to take over right field for the Cards in 2014.

Nice problem to have if you’re the Cardinals, but it’s a problem all the same.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
