Carlos Beltran's tenure as Mets manager is over, the team announced Thursday.
In a statement, Mets Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon and Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said that the team agreed to "mutually part ways" with Beltran.
Beltran was hired this past November. He leaves without managing a game for the team.
The decision follows a report on a sign-stealing scandal involving the Houston Astros, who were accused of using electronic devices to steal signs during their 2017 World Series-winning season, and into the 2018 season. Beltran, who was a player for the Astros at the time, was named in the report as participating in the scandal. He was not suspended by the MLB because Commissioner Rob Manfred decided not to suspend any players involved.
Beltran is the latest person connected to the scandal to lose his job as a result of the scandal. The Astros fired General Manager Jeff Luhnow and Manager A.J. Hinch on Monday after both were suspended for one year because of the scandal.
Red Sox Manager Alex Cora, who was also named in the report, mutually parted ways with the team on Tuesday. Cora was the Astros' bench coach in 2017. His punishment has not yet been decided, because a separate investigation involving the 2018 Red Sox has not yet concluded.
