The Cardinals intensified their talks with the agent for switch-hitting outfielder Carlos Beltran late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.

The Cleveland Indians joined the handful of teams that are making bids for the free agent and former All-Star, according to two reports late Wednesday night and later confirmed by the Post-Dispatch.
