Nationals Claim Chris Coste Off Waivers
According to Brian Costa of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Washington Nationals have claimed catcher Chris Coste after the Mets placed him on waivers this weekend.
Coste, 37, hit .224/.301/.317 in 230 plate appearances for the Phillies and Astros last year.
After signing with the Mets, Coste made the following comments which understandably ticked many a Mets fan off.
“It’s the last team I ever saw myself playing for. I knew I was going to accept it, but had to think about it for a few days… It wasn’t my choice to leave Philly… I never wanted to leave Philadelphia, I will always consider myself a Phillie.”
This spring for the Mets, Coste batted .308 going 3 for 13 with a walk.
This will pave the way for Omir Santos to be Josh Thole’s backup in Buffalo when the Mets break camp and head back to New York for opening day.
