Welcome to Queens, Eduardo Nuñez. (Maybe.)
The Mets have extended a non-roster invitation to infielder, Eduardo Nuñez. He will not be promised a slot on the 40 man roster, but instead will be given the opportunity to fight for one in spring training.
If he makes the team he’ll earn 1.25M with 750k in incentives for the 2020 season
Nuñez is a name that came up quite frequently before the 2018 season. The Mets had a hole to fill on the infield that ultimately went to Todd Frazier.
Nuñez hits for average, doesn’t get on base a ton and is an awful fielder. He still has some speed but isn’t as prolific a base stealer as he once was.
We’ll see how he looks in Port St. Lucie!
Eduardo Núñez began his career with the Yankees, where he was teammates with Robinson Canó and Dellin Betances. He played over 100 games with SF and coach Hensley Meulens. He hit .321 in 38 games with BOS in 2017 where his hitting coach was Chili Davis. Lots of familiarity. #Mets
