2011 MLB Free Agency: St. Louis Cardinals May Sign Carlos Beltran By Sunday

According to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, the St. Louis Cardinals may be able to sign free agent slugger OF Carlos Beltran by Christams Day. The latest rumors suggest Beltran has narrowed his field down to four teams, the Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and Cardinals.

Brown notes that Beltran is expected to sign by Sunday, and he also suggests the Cardinals are the favorites to acquire him.

Beltran, who will be 35 next season, had one of the best seasons of his career in 2011. Despite hitting only 22 home runs, Beltran managed an impressive .300/.385/.525 split while playing for the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants.
