Coste, who signed with the Mets after they were the only team to guarantee him a 40-man roster spot, became much of an afterthought after the team signed Henry Blanco and Rod Barajas. Many believed he would be the tutor for young Josh Thole at Buffalo.
With Coste to Washington, likely with concerns for ex-Met Jesus Flores’ shoulder, Josh Thole and Omir Santos are likely behind the plate for Buffalo next season.
Goodbye, Chris Coste. We hardly knew ye.
