Bobby Abreu is back with the Mets

1 Comment

Designated for assignment and then released by the Mets last week, Bobby Abreu has signed a minor-league deal with … the Mets.

Abreu will report to Triple-A, where he hit .395 in 15 games earlier this season before being called up to the majors. He got off to a decent start as a bench bat and occasional starter for the Mets, but Abreu hit .151 from mid-June until he was let go.

Presumably the Mets have indicated to Abreu that he has a good shot of returning to the big leagues as a September call-up and, not surprisingly, the 40-year-old’s other options were limited.
