DK: Beltran Refused to Waive No-Trade for Pirates
Carlos Beltran was traded today to the San Francisco Giants for top pitching prospect Zach Wheeler. Dejan Kovacevic provides an update for us, saying that Beltran refused to waive his no-trade clause for the Pirates, who were making a hard push for the outfielder. Dejan adds that the Pirates were willing to take on all of the $6.5 M that remained in his 2011 contract. The Mets paid $4 M to get the return that they received from the Giants.
