The Astros signed outfielder Cory Sullivan to a minor league deal, tweets Alyson Footer. Sullivan, 30, hit .250/.338/.382 for the Mets in 157 plate appearances last year while mainly playing left field. He also tallied a .290/.352/.367 line in 320 PAs for the Mets' Triple A affiliate. Sullivan was non-tendered on the December 12th deadline.
Also, in case you missed it, Jeremy Reed signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays yesterday. Like Sullivan, Reed played outfield for the '09 Mets and was non-tendered in December. The 28-year-old hit .242/.301/.304 in 177 plate appearances for the big club, playing all three outfield positions and even a little first base. Before the 2004 season, Baseball America ranked Reed the 25th best prospect in the game.
Wow Mets got ripped in the JJ Putz deal. Gutierrez was apart of that. Hard to believe.
