Mayberry moves on

Former Mets outfielder and first baseman John Mayberry Jr. has signed a minor league deal with the Detroit Tigers organization that includes an invitation to major league spring training camp.

I find that remarkable. Mayberry was awful during his 59 games as a Met in 2015, with a .164 batting average, .227 on-base percentage and .318 slugging percentage. When the Mets finally released Mayberry at the end of July, I thought that would be the end of his baseball career. (Somehow I missed his three weeks in the Chicago White Sox organization last August.)

For his career, Mayberry has decent numbers against lefties… so I guess it makes some sense to give him a shot. But how many 32-year-old players rebound from seasons like Mayberry’s 2015?

Anyway, here’s wishing him the best (except when the Mets head out to Detroit during the first week of August.)
