Earlier today I mentioned the fact that Galarraga had been DFA’d and could be an intriguing option for the Mets.
This afternoon I bring you yet another DFA’d player that could find a role on the Mets. This guy did not throw a no-no hitter so you may not have heard of him. He is utility guy Steven Tolleson.
Who? No not Hu. Steven Tolleson.
Tolleson is a 27 year old utility guy that has experience at SS, 2B, 3B, LF, RF. He is right handed and has shown to be a competent hitter. In just 53 PA last season at the MLB level he posted
His minor league career gives a slash line of
.284 .374 .414 .789 in 2400+ PA with a line of .332 .412 .503 .915 last season.
As usual Oakland will have 10 days to decide what to do with Tolleson. I think it would be a strong move by the Mets to add him to the mix of guys competing for 2B and utility guy and should not cost the Mets any prospect of note.
