You know I love following the unlikely comeback stories of the spring. Our subject today is 36 year-old outfielder Raul Mondesi, last seen in the Majors with the Braves in 2005.
My Spanish is a little rusty, but here’s the El Nuevo Dia article announcing his possible comeback. According to the article, Mondesi is in negotiations with the Mets and an unknown Japanese club. He should probably opt for Door #2.
It sounds like he is physically at 85% and plans to play in the Pan-American Games. Once he’s 100% by summer he’d like to join a big league team. Correct me if I am wrong on that translation.
I expect a denial by the Mets by lunchtime Wednesday.
