Jose Reyes still lives in New York despite playing for the Marlins last season and the Blue Jays this season (and beyond), but he recently bought a new place there for $4.2 million and now the former Mets shortstop is looking to sell his old place on Long Island.
For the low, low price for $4.495 million you can own his 11-room house “located in a gated community with 24-hour security and two tennis courts.”
Presumably the price tag does not include the family portrait shown hanging on the wall in the attached picture, but at least “there is a wine cellar in the finished basement.” Phew.
The Indians have signed free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera to a minor league deal. The pact is pending a physical.
Cabrera, 33, went unsigned this past offseason after putting up a season of .285/.324/.423 with 17 homers and 85 RBI with the White Sox and the Royals.
Cabrera will report to Columbus once he passes his physical and, according to Paul Hoynes, there are no guarantees being made to him that he’ll get playing time. That said, the Indians aren’t getting much outfield production from anyone besides Michael Brantley, and Cabrera’s status as a switch hitter would give Terry Francona some flexibility, so it would not be shocking to see him on the big club after some reps in the minors.
