Carlos BeltranCarlos Beltrans time in St. Louis is likely over, as Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports that he will turn down the clubs qualifying offer and hopes to land a three- or four-year deal in free agency.

Its pretty amazing that a three- or four-year deal could be even semi-realistic given Beltrans knee issues during the end of his tenure with the Mets, but he has remained mostly healthy and productive over the last three seasons, averaging 146 games played. He batted .296/.339/.491 with 24 home runs and 84 RBI this season and could be poised to capitalize following another strong postseason.
