Rick Ankiel Elects Free Agency

Outfielder Rick Ankiel has elected free agency from the Mets, according to the MLB.com transactions page.  The Mets designated the 33-year-old for assignment on Saturday to clear roster space for fellow outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

Ankiel was hitting .194/.254/.387 for the Mets but wasn't used a whole lot in the last week of his tenure in Nw York.  The converted pitcher has hit .241/.302/.423 in 2,111 plate appearances for the Cardinals, Royals, Braves, Nationals, Astros, and Mets.
