Haggerty was traded from the Indians to the Mets with pitcher Walker Lockett for Kevin Plawecki on Sunday. Haggerty's offensive profile leaves something to be desired: He hasn't hit north of .253 since 2015, when he was in short-season ball. However, he takes walks at a good rate and has experience playing all over the field. He could be a reserve utility player for the Mets in the future if he can become a bit more competent at the plate.
Haggerty (undisclosed) was activatedfrom the minor-league 7-day disabled list Sunday. Haggerty will return to the Double-A Akron roster after a month-long absence. The infielder held a .188 average through 40 plate appearances prior to his placement on the DL.
Haggerty stole his league-leading 36th base in Wednesday's game with High-A Lynchburg, The News-Herald reports. Not only does the second baseman lead the Carolina League in steals, Haggerty's league-leading 12 triples give him the most extra-base hits (38) among the group, too. Furthermore, the 23-year-old leads all Indians minor leaguers in doubles (24), runs (55) and ranks third in walks (50). Haggerty's .805 OPS and excellent speed should land him on dynasty radars in 2018.
