The Rangers have a deal in place to acquire Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan. New York will acquire right-handers Dillon Tate, Erik Swanson and Nick Green, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and YES Network’s Jack Curry. Cash will head to Texas in the deal.

Beltran has a limited no-trade clause but cannot block a deal to the Rangers, according to our Chris Cotillo.

As the deadline approaches, it didn’t seem the Yankees had an issue with moving Beltran, who is an impending free agent.

Beltran, 39, is having a solid season, batting .304/.344/.546 with 22 home runs and 64 RBIs over 99 games.

Tate, 22, has pitched to a 5.12 ERA this season. He was the Rangers’ first round draft pick in 2015 and has pitched to a career 4.62 ERA.

Swanson has pitched to a 3.43 ERA over 81.1 innings in Single-A this season. Green, a seventh round pick in 2014, has pitched to a 4.98 ERA over 34.1 innings in Single-A this season.

Joel Sherman of The New York Post and Rosenthal were among the first to report a deal involving Beltran was close.
