      Melky Cabrera: Released by Mets

      Melky Cabrera was released by the Mets on Wednesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.Cabrera's offense slipped in his 15th big-league season last year, as he hit a modest .280/.313/.399 in 397 plate appearances for the Pirates, good for just an 85 wRC+. Whether or not that's enough to convince another team to take a chance on the 35-year-old remains to be seen.

      Mets' Melky Cabrera: Links up with Mets

      Melky Cabrera signed a non-guaranteed contract with the New York Mets on Monday and is expected to be included in the club's 60-man roster pool.Cabrera had been unsigned since the end of the 2019 season after batting .280 with seven home runs and 47 RBI in 397 plate appearances with the Pirates. As the high average and his strong 10.3 percent strikeout rate illustrate, Cabrera still makes contact at an elite level at this stage of his career, but his lack of power and diminished speed render him a rather low-upside fantasy option even when he's getting meaningful playing time. He'll likely have to settle for part-time duty at best with the Mets in 2020, with Michael Conforto, J.D. Davis, Brandon Nimmo, Jake Marisnick and Dominic Smith all likely ahead of him in the outfield pecking order.
