The Indians released outfielder Fred Lewis, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (on Twitter). They had signed Lewis to a minor league contract in January.
Lewis posted a .230/.321/.317 line in 210 plate appearances for Cincinnati last year, but he spent time on the disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle. The 31-year-old played both corner outfield positions for the Reds, who signed him for $900K. Lewis, a left-handed hitter, has a track record of success against right-handed pitching (.780 career OPS).
I think Lewis, if healthy, could be a good fit for the Mets.

Trying to add to your collection of used Giants outfielders?
This guy looks like Jason Heyward, just sayin…
I was curious, so I googled it. On the first page of google images is a Photoshopped cover of MLB 2K10 with Fred Lewis on the cover. Who in their right mind would want Fred Lewis on the cover of… well, anything?
Somebody will pick him up
Followed immediately by putting him back down.
Malcontents need more skills than he has to stick.
all you nay sayers have no idea. He is a good player. staying healthy is a big part of being a professional and thats his biggest downfall. he played the first 3 years of his big league career with two bunions. After having them removed he didnt put on a shoe until the first week of spring training. He works hard and has a great love for the game. Though all his stats aren’t arod material he still can be a big leaugue before any of you. That may have never picked up a bat in their life. You parents bought you a computer now you think your cool because someone actually pays attention to what you say
