Mets News: Brad Emaus and Fred Lewis Signed To Minor League Deals
Emaus, 26, had signed to start 2012 with the Laredo Lemurs of the American Association before joining New York. He appeared in 14 games with the Mets in 2011, hitting .162 (6-37).
The 6-0, 205-pound native of Kalamazoo, MI, also appeared in 45 games with Colorado Springs (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League last season, hitting .313 (51-163) for Colorado’s Triple-A club. A career .280 (482-1722) hitter at the minor league level, Emaus spent time with Boston this spring before being released.
Lewis, 31, went to Spring Training this season with Cleveland and hit .200 (3-15) in nine games. He appeared in 81 games with Cincinnati last season, hitting .230 (42-183) with three home runs and 19 RBI.
The 6-2, 200-pound native of Hattiesburg, MS, is a career .267 (412-1542) hitter in 517 games at the major league level.
Thoughts from Joe D – Both players are nothing more than minor league roster fodder for Buffalo. Remember that in the last 24 hours the Bisons have lost both Jordany Valdespin and Zach Lutz to the Mets and Adam Loewen is out with an injured foot.
Emaus looks more and more like a classic Quadruple-A player, while Lewis may emerge as a 5th outfielder type at best.
