Posted on: August 10, 2010 8:48 pm

Carlos Beltran Mets center fielder Carlos Beltran cleared waivers on Monday,'s Jon Paul Morosi reports , but a full no-trade clause and more than $24 million left on his contract makes that unlikely.

Beltran is under contract for $18.5 million next season.

Beltran had knee surgery in January and didn't return to the Mets until July 15.

Since returning, he's struggled, hitting .195/.300/.312 with one home run and seven RBI in 22 games. Angel Pagan played well in center with Beltran gone and is hitting .311/.370/.475 with nine homers and 50 RBI entering Tuesday's game.

What do you mean no trade clause! Well guess the Sox cant go after another washed up Met.......besides 18.5 mill for .195 BA sounds like a good deal to me. Now if there was just some way of getting him to waive that no trade clause
