Before being traded last July, Carlos Beltran offered to pay for a nose job for Jon Niese. Now a St. Louis Cardinal, Beltran has finally footed the bill.

Niese received the $10,000 payment from Beltran, the southpaw confirmed.

Niese originally underwent the rhinoplasty procedure in October for cosmetic reasons, but said it actually has dramatically helped his breathing.
