Adrian Beltre's agent Scott Boras is seeking five years and north of $70MM, tweets ESPN's Buster Olney. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports chimes in with five years, $85MM. In mid-November, SI's Jon Heyman had suggested a five-year, $90MM target.
Beltre recently lost a major suitor when the Red Sox acquired a different Adrian. Boras reportedly ignored offers from the Athletics, including a five-year, $64MM proposal. Yahoo's Steve Henson tweets that with those two clubs out of the bidding, Beltre will wait it out in hopes of landing with a winning team.
