Your move, Scott Boras:
In addition to signing RH relievers Scott Atchison & LaTroy Hawkins to minors deals, #Mets also inked OFs Corey Patterson & Mike Wilson

Corey Patterson did not play in the bigs last year. He did play 117 games for the Brewers’ Triple-A team in Nashville, though, where he hit .251/.285/.410. So, yeah.
Yes, it’s only a minor league deal. But the Mets have the thinnest outfield in all of baseball, I reckon, so it’s not crazy to think he stands a good shot at making the big league roster.
