Switch-hitter Carlos Beltran is winding down a great career. Many in the media will call him one of the all-time great switch hitters, but don’t believe the hype. Beltran ranks a step below Hall of Fame switch-hitters Chipper Jones, Mickey Mantle, and Eddie Murray. Currently playing for the Yankees, Beltran is a doubtful candidate for the Hall of Fame.
Unlike Beltran and Murray, both Chipper and Mantle retired with fewer strikeouts than walks – and had a much higher OPS (over .925). Beltran’s ratio of strikeouts to walks is 3/2.
