In addition to Beltran, the Rangers will also get cash considerations in the trade. The Yankees, meanwhile, get minor league right-handed pitchers Dillon Tate, Nick Green and Erik Swanson.
Beltran, 39, will be a free agent at the end of this season, when his current three-year, $45 million contract runs out.
