Looking for salary relief or a swap of bad contracts, the Mets approached the Angels about Carlos Beltran, the New York Post reported.

Beltran is owed $18.5 million this season. The Angels opted instead for trading for Vernon Wells from Toronto. According to the report, Angels executives concluded Wells was more capable of playing center than Beltran with knee issues at this point in Beltran's career, according to the report.
