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.

For what it's worth, both Boston papers report that the Red Sox will be exercising the $4 million perpetual option on Wakefield. The Globe speculates the Sox may not be active in the FA pitching market and leave the 5th slot to Buchholz, Masterson, or Bowden, unless they move pitching in a deal for another bat or a catcher. Much speculation they may be inthe mix on Teixeira and then attempt to move Lowell, and that they are looking for a catcher from Texas.
