Mets sign INF Brad Emaus and OF Fred Lewis to Minor League Deals


The Mets added a pair of potentially useful pieces signing infielder Brad Emaus and outfielder Fred Lewis to minor league deals.

Lewis plays all three outfield positions, and has a solid .780 OPS career against right-handed pitchers. Put another way: if the Mets were looking to set Scott Hairston up in a platoon in left or right field, Lewis would be a perfectly reasonable guy to join Hairston in it.

As for Emaus, the patience and power at second base should provide depth there. I think the move tells us that they aren’t sold on Bobby Scales, the second baseman at Buffalo, to step in if the Mets need someone at the position.

I thought Emaus was going to stick around last year after the great spring he had , but he fell short of greatness in the Majors..... Good to see Emaus back in a Mets uniform.
