The Mets have signed free agent outfielder Cory Sullivan to one-year major league deal.
The contract is worth $600,000 with $300,000 more available through incentives.
I don't get this. As if the Mets needed another outfielder at the major league level. A major league deal just makes no sense to me. Hmm...maybe something is stirring?
Sullivan has played his entire career with the Rockies organization. In 355 games over four seasons, Sullivan is a career .279 batter, with a .330 OBP and .391 SLG. He's hit eight career home runs.
Defensively, though, it's a different story. Sporting a career .992 fielding percentage at all three outfield positions.
Still very odd.
