Carlos Beltran has received a bill from Jon Niese after promising last July to pay for the southpaw's nose job. And Beltran told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he will make good on his pledge to pay for the procedure.

Niese had surgery in October. The southpaw originally was motivated by cosmetic reasons, but said the rhinoplasty procedure also has improved his breathing.

"He ended up doing it, and I have to pay for it," Beltran told Derrick Goold of the Post-Dispatch. "I did get the bill. I've waited to go there and give it to him personally. ... He doesn't have to pay $10,000 for his nose."
