Beltran, Astros finalize $16 million, 1-year contract

HOUSTON (AP) Carlos Beltran has been trying to find a way to get back to Houston for years after spending a remarkable few months with the Astros more than a decade ago.

On Monday he finally got his wish when he and the Astros finalized a one-year, $16 million contract.

"It only took 12 years to come back," he said with a smile. "I'm happy to be where I am and looking forward to working with the younger guys like Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, (Alex) Bregman - the young core that's going to be here for a long time."
