Mets Acquire Kelly Shoppach

Well, the Mets finally got the offensive catcher they were after. Shoppach, is 32 years old and is a poor contact, decent power hitting backstop that has bounced around the American League throughout his career. The deal is for a player to be named later, so yay I guess. This is most likely a tryout for Shoppach and if he performs well enough he will be battling with Josh Thole for the starting catchers gig come Spring. Nice post deadline move by Sandy.  Here are Kelly's stats thus far. 
  • Avg.250
  • HR5
  • RBI17
  • Runs16
  • SB1
