The New York Post reports that the Mets are “deep into negotiations” with Fernando Tatis and could announce his signing as early as today. He made $1.7 million last year and reportedly wants around the same this year.
Tatis has been told by Omar Minaya that he is wanted as part of a first-base platoon with Daniel Murphy. He started 32 games at first base last year and hit .282 with eight homers and 48 RBI. He also played the outfield, third base and even some games at second and short, which I must have blocked out of my mind because you think I would have remembered something as horrific as that.
If the Mets do sign Tatis, we can probably call it a career for Carlos Delgado, because they’re really the only ones who have shown any real interest in him, and with Tatis in the fold, he’d have no place on the team.
