Jose Reyes, Mets finalize $2 million, 1-year contract

Jose Reyes, Mets finalize $2 million, 1-year contract

With AP Photos.Jose Reyes and the New York Mets finalized a $2 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows him to earn an additional $500,000 in bonuses.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the agreement was subject to a successful physical.

Reyes started his career with the Mets in 2003.

He batted.246 with a.728 OPS in 145 games last season, playing at short, third and second.

Reyes is the franchise leader in stolen bases and triples and is second all-time in hits, runs and doubles. Rivera, Reyes, and David Wright, if healthy, will split time at second and third base. Although Reyes is certainly not the player he once was, he proved in the second half of last season that he is still good enough to be a utility infielder for the Mets in 2018. They are interested in third baseman Todd Frazier as well with Asdrubal Cabrera potentially making the switch to second base if he joins.

Regardless of who the Mets acquire, Reyes adds depth. The Mets maintained interest in Reyes throughout this offseason, largely for that reason. He was traded in November 2012 to Toronto and in July 2015 to Colorado, which released him in 2016 after Reyes served a 59-day domestic violence suspension.

The move doesn't come as a surprise because Reyes had already expressed his desire to stay with the organization at the end of last season.

"I'm glad to be back", Reyes said in a statement issued Friday. "Now, I'm at the end of my career".

In need of infield help with spring training fast approaching, the New York Mets have turned to a familiar face. There has been internal debate over the bullpen size in recent weeks, but considering the Mets' desire to lean more heavily on their relievers, an eight-man "pen and four-man bench appear to be the most likely options".
