And it's one that Beltran was ready for.
On Monday, less than two weeks after the Astros' World Series victory over the Dodgers, Carlos Beltran retired after he claimed the first championship of his career. Puckett won a pair of World Championships with the Twins, slashed.318/.360/.477, made ten All-Star Games, won six Gold Gloves, and six Silver Sluggers.
Beltran had a tough 2017, but it was also his age-40 season, so he might have left the game behind even if he had put together another solid campaign.

The litmus test regarding Beltran's candidacy will not come from Lofton, Edmonds, Puckett, or Murphy, but instead will come with a player that will be appearing on the ballot this year for the first time - Andruw Jones. "With the experience that I have in the game of baseball, the times I've played, different teams that I've played for, I've gotten to see different ways to do things in the clubhouse and for the players".
"And I am blessed to be a champion", Beltran wrote. The Astros signed him to be their primary DH, though as the season progressed, his playing time decreased.
Beltran retires with a lifetime.279/.350/.486 triple slash, which includes 2,725 hits, 565 doubles, and 435 home runs.

During the 1999 season, Beltran hit for a.293 batting average, 22 home runs and 108 RBIs. And would Beltran want to jump into a job that big without a break from the game? "Muchas gracias, béisbol. I can't wait for what the next chapter holds". He played 2,586 regular season games in the majors, and until he won that World Series, he was one of just three players with more than 2,500 games and no ring. "There were days when the family was in Houston that I didn't feel like going to the ballpark".
Beltran's name is frequently thrown around in Hall of Fame conversations, but he hasn't spent much time considering that possibility. To have been able to build a school in Puerto Rico and change the lives of so many kids. He only played in 150 or more games eight times over that stretch, meaning he easily could have reached the 500 home run or even 3,000 hit marks in his career had he not been hurt.
