Taylor Tankersley signed a minor-league deal with the Mets on Tuesday, with an invite to spring training.
Tankersley, a lefty, missed all of 2009 due to a stress fracture in his left elbow. His ‘10 season, a mere 12 innings, was less than stellar. He allowed 12 hits, four of them for home runs. And for those that like to see ERA: 7.50.
If used as a lefty-specialist, Tankersley could be pretty good, if you take a look at his splits on Baseball-Reference. Essentially the new Pedro Feliciano, if he’s healthy.
Also, he has great facial hair.
All in all, I’m happy with this signing.
What do you think of the Mets inking Tankersley?
