See You In San Francisco, Carlos

The day has finally arrived. The Carlos Beltran Trade Watch appears to have run its course.

Reports have indicated that Beltran has all but been traded to the San Francisco Giants for right-handed pitching prospect, Zack Wheeler.

Beltran has 24 hours to approve the deal.

According to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman, the Mets will be paying roughly $4 million to Beltran in order to obtain Wheeler.

Wheeler was selected by the Giants in the first round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft.

In his first year of pro ball, Wheeler was 3-3 with a 3.99 ERA in 21 games for the Augusta Greenjackets. So far in 2011, he is 7-5 with a 3.99 ERA in 16 games with San Jose. Opponents are batting just .224 off him this season.
