Beltran hit .296 with 24 homers and drove in 84 runs for the St. Louis Cardinals last season.
He has reportedly been seeking a three-year deal and will be 37 when the season starts next year.
Beltran, an eight-time All-Star, averaged .288, 26 homers, and 88 RBI in the past three seasons.
The Cardinals made a $14.1 million qualifying offer to Beltran earlier this month, which Beltran rejected. If a team than other than the Cardinals sign him, the team would have to give up a draft pick.
