Carlos Beltran interviewing to be Yankees manager

Carlos Beltran is a candidate to replace Joe Girardi as manager of the New York Yankees.

Beltran, 40, retired after winning the World Series with the Houston Astros but has expressed interest in being involved in Major League Baseball.

The Yankees parted with Joe Girardi on Oct. 26 and Beltran noted Girardi and Joe Torre smoothly transitioned from playing careers to become MLB managers. Beltran played for the Yankees under Girardi from 2014 to 2016 and spent 20 years in the majors.

Beltran is scheduled to interview with general manager Brian Cashman on Wednesday.

Former Yankees infielder Aaron Boone, Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens, Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward, Yankees bench coach Rob Thompson and former Indians and Mariners manager Eric Wedge interviewed with the Yankees during the month-long vacancy.
