NEW YORK (AP) - Carlos Beltrán is out as manager of the New York Mets before a single game. 

It's the latest fallout from the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal that has rocked Major League Baseball. 

The Mets say they and Beltrán have agreed to part ways. The move comes two days after Boston cut ties with manager Alex Cora, who was Houston’s bench coach in 2017 when Beltrán played for the Astros. 

A day before that, manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were fired by Houston soon after they were suspended for the 2020 season by Commissioner Rob Manfred for their roles in the cheating scheme.
