Carlos Beltran has agreed to a one-year deal to rejoin the Houston Astros, according to multiple reports.

The deal, worth $16 million, was first reported by ESPN’s Buster Olney, who adds that it includes a full no-trade clause.

Beltran, 39, played for the Astros in 2004, helping lead them to the World Series with a torrid playoff hitting streak after they acquired him mid-season. He left for the Mets in the ensuing off-season.

Playing in the outfield and as a DH, Beltran hit .295 with 29 home runs and 93 RBIs last season with the Yankees and Rangers.

The Astros were rumored to be in the mix for Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion. It’s unclear how the addition of Beltran, who is likely to take up at-bats at DH, impacts that.
