According to a person who knows Carlos Beltran, the switch-hitting right fielder has drawn strong interest from the Yankees’ blood rivals.

The person said the Yankees and Orioles are in on Beltran, too, but the Red Sox have been more aggressive.

Of course, it’s early in the process and that could change. Beltran, 37 in late April, is expected to turn down the Cardinals’ $14.1 million qualifying offer Monday. Teams signing him will forfeit a draft pick in June.
