Cardinals Make Qualifying Offer To Beltran

If outfielder Carlos Beltran leaves the Cardinals, the team won't go uncompensated. St. Louis has extended a qualifying offer to the right fielder, which is valued at one year for 14.1-million-dollars. The Cardinals will be eligible to receive a compensatory draft pick should he sign elsewhere. Beltran hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBI during the regular season. The 36-year-old then homered twice and drove in 15 runs during the Cards' playoff run to the World Series.
