The Mets and utility-man Fernando Tatis are closing in on a contract, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Tatis, who made $1.7 million last year with the Mets, would serve as a likely backup/platoon partner with Daniel Murphy at first base. He could also spell either corner outfield position, as well as David Wright at third.
I’m for this. I think Tatis can contribute to the team, especially they way it is designed right now.
