The Houston Astros bode farewell to an old friend at Minute Maid Park -- Carlos Beltran's glove.
Beltran, a three-time MLB Gold Glove winning outfielder, has not played his fielding position since May 16 due to a stacked Astros roster and his aging 40-year-old body.
Led by Brian McCann, his Astros team-mates jokingly put Beltran's glove out of its misery before their matchup with the Seattle Mariners on Monday.
Beltran was with the Astros in 2004 and re-joined the team this year after spending last season between the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers.
He has played just nine games in the outfield this season, but continues to see time at designated hitter despite batting .231/.289/.408 for the American League leaders.
Perhaps McCann should lead a resurrection of Beltran's bat next.
