Mets Trade Francoeur To The Texas Rangers
It’s Official, the Mets have traded rightfielder Jeff Francoeur to the Texas Rangers for infielder Joaquin Arias.
Arias turns 26 in three weeks and has a career .286 batting average in 242 plate appearances. He plays second base so we may see him log some extended playing time.
Good luck Frenchy. We wish you well, and have fun in the Post Season.
Earlier today, Adam Rubin reported that there’s at least a chance Jeff Francoeur could be spending his last day as a New York Met.
Two MLB sources told ESPNNewYork.com that the Texas Rangers are looking for a right-handed-hitting outfielder for the bench and are considering Francoeur.
“His name has definitely been talked about,” one source said.
The deal would need to be completed today for Frenchy to be eligible for the postseason roster.
Sounds like the planets are aligning for a celebration among saber-minded Mets fans who never had any use or anything good to say for the Mets rightfielder.
