Tatis Stays With Mets
Last night, Fernando Tatis opted to stay with the Mets, agreeing to a one-year, $1.7 million deal.
Tatis suffered a separated shoulder against the Nats on Sept. 16 and missed the rest of the season. He hit .297 with 11 homers and 47 RBI in 92 games, earning $550,000.
From the Associated Press:
"Fernando got so many key hits for us last year," General Manager Omar Minaya said in a statement. "Not having him the last few weeks of the season certainly hurt. His versatility certainly makes us a better team."
Out of baseball from 2004-05, the 33-year-old Tatis gave the Mets a surprising boost after he was called up from the minors May 13. Filling in regularly for injured outfielders Moises Alou and Ryan Church, Tatis had a string of clutch homers and hits.
