Mets Re-Sign Bobby Abreu

The Mets announced (on Twitter) that they have re-signed Bobby Abreu to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas. The 40-year-old veteran has already appeared in 67 games for the Mets this season after signing a minor league contract at the end of March. New York designated him for assignment and released him earlier this month.

Abreu slashed .238/.331/.336 with one homer in 142 plate appearances for the Mets earlier this year. He raked in 45 plate appearances at Triple-A before being promoted to the big league club, hitting .395/.489/.579. Prior to hooking on with the Mets this season, Abreu had inked a minor league deal with the Phillies, a team with which he enjoyed some of his best seasons, but Philadelphia cut him loose late in Spring Training despite a respectable showing.

      A bit of mentoring in the Minors maybe. Can’t do much harm, the Mets aren’t very good either way.

        Well, they were going to have to pay his salary anyway.

    WHYYYYYYYYYYYY????????????? all he is going to do is take at bats away from other minor leaguers. If the Mets wanted him, they should have brought him in as a coach.
