The Mets have added yet another left handed bat to the spring training roster. Rob Mackowiak has caught on with the Mets, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post.
It's a minor league deal that could be worth up to $800,000 if he makes the Mets and surpasses a certain number of plate appearances.
Last season, Mackowiak hit -- brace yourself -- a cool .132 in 53 at-bat's for the Washington Nationals.
He's a career .259 hitter, with a .332 OBP and .405 slugging over 856 games. His best full season came in 2005 with the Pirates, where he his .272/.337/.389 in 142 games (463 at-bat's).
I guess the Bisons will be decent this year.
