Getty Images’s TR Sullivan reports that Carlos Beltran plans to keep playing in 2017. He hopes for the Rangers, but if not, he’ll enter the free agent market.

Beltran will turn 40 next April, but he still hit .295/.337/.513 with 29 homers and 93 RBI over 151 games between the Yankees and the Rangers, splitting time between the outfield and DH.

Someone will sign him, likely pretty quickly after he formally files for free agency as he is highly unlikely to receive a qualifying offer.
