      Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Looking healthy in camp

      Eduardo Nunez says he's fully recovered from the knee injury that ruined his 2019 campaign, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. "Sometimes when I saw my name in the lineup in Boston, I was like, 'Oh my God... I have to play today? It's so painful. I'm so sore.' It's not fun to compete when you have so much pain in your knee," Nunez said this week. "Last year, I couldn't even play defense, I couldn't hustle, I couldn't steal any base, I couldn't hit for power, so it was really tough."An All-Star in 2016, Nunez strained the PCL in his right knee toward the end of the 2017 season and saw his performance steadily regress afterward, bottoming out at a .548 OPS last year. Released by the Red Sox in July, the 32-year-old elected to go home and rest his knee rather than try to catch on elsewhere, and the time off seems to have rejuvenated him. Nunez is slashing .321/.387/.464 through 31 plate appearances this spring as a non-roster invitee, and while it's not clear if there's room for him on the New York Mets' 26-man roster, he could wind up elsewhere if he doesn't make the cut for New York.

      Mets' Eduardo Nunez: Signs with Mets

      Eduardo Nunez signed with the New York Mets as a non-roster invitee Saturday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.The 32-year-old's career has taken a sharp downturn over the last two seasons following three straight years with an above-average batting line from 2015 to 2017. He hit just .265/.289/.388 in 2018 and struggled to a .228/.243/.305 line in 174 plate appearances for the Red Sox in 2019 before being released in mid-July. He'll be fighting for a bench spot this spring.

      Eduardo Nunez: Becomes free agent

      The Red Sox released Eduardo Nunez on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.After designating Nunez for assignment earlier this week, the Red Sox were unable to find any takers on the trade market for the utility man, and no teams were willing to put in a waiver claim for his services, either. Since Nunez had more than five years' worth of MLB service time, he had the ability to refuse an outright assignment to the minors, which likely factored into the team's decision to cut him loose. Nunez should at the very least land a minor-league deal with another organization that includes an opt-out clause in the near future if none of the league's other 29 teams is willing to sign him to an MLB deal for the minimum.

      Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Designated for assignment

      Eduardo Nunez was designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox on Monday.The move may be somewhat unexpected, but it's hard to say it wasn't deserved. Nunez's .265/.289/.388 slash line last season was poor enough, but he hit a new low this season, posting a .228/.243/.305 slash line. He could still provide fantasy owners a handful of steals if he lands with a team that gives him regular playing time, but his bat may have deteriorated to the point where that's unlikely. Sam Travis was called up in a corresponding move.
