Mets Sign Another Outfielder, Rob Mackowiak
The New York Post is reporting that the Mets have signed lefthanded outfielder, Rob Mackowiak.
In a continuing collection of lefty-hitting outfielders, the New York Mets have signed Rob Mackowiak to a minor league contract, the Post has learned.
If Mackowiak makes the team he will have a base salary of $600,000 and he has a chance to earn an additional $200,000 in bonuses depending on plate appearances between 250 and 500. Mackowiak, 32, played in just 38 games with the Nationals before being released. He hit .132 for Washington. He finished the season playing 49 games for the Reds’ Triple-A affiliate.
I guess the Mets will have plenty of left handed bats vying for a spot on the bench in Spring Training. Mackowiak is the third lefthanded utility player the Mets have signed in the last 60 hours.
