Mets Sign Mike Hessman To Minor League Deal (yawn)
Adam Rubin of the Daily News, is reporting that the Mets have signed career minor leaguer Mike Hessman.
Hessman, 31, played of the Class-AAA Toledo Mud Hens last season and batted .217 with a team leading 23 home runs and 77 RBIs.
The third baseman is adept as several other positions including outfield, and is most likely nothing more than another addition for a depleted Buffalo Bisons roster that had suffered many defections since their season ended.
Hessman has a .208 average with 13 homers in 168 major-league at-bats.
He signs a split contract for the league minimum and there’s a chance he might leave and play for Japan.
