Mike Nickeas Clears Waivers, Outrighted To Triple-A Vegas
Mets catcher Mike Nickeas has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas, the team announced today. He is no longer on the 40-man roster.
Nickeas, 29, batted .174 with one home run and 13 RBI and had a .471 OPS in 122 plate appearances in 2012. Pretty scary, huh?
The Mets have said that improving the catching situation will be an offseason priority, but will not be adding anyone significant via free agency.
They have yet to decide whether to tend a contract to Josh Thole, but for now I can’t see them non-tendering him. Last week there were reports that Kelly Shoppach did not impress the brass and that he won’t be back.
