Former Mets First Baseman signs with Sugar Land Skeeters

James Loney has inked a deal with the Sugar Land Skeeters as he’s attempting to get noticed in hopes of a Major League Baseball comeback. Not only will Loney be playing for the Skeeters, but he’ll also act as a coach for the independent league team.

Loney’s Major League Baseball career never really took off after being drafted by the Dodgers as their first round pick.

The first baseman spent his 2016 season with the New York Mets as he participated in 100 games, accumulating 343 at bats. Loney hit 16 doubles, 9 home runs, driving in 34 runs while putting together a .265/ .307/ .397 slash line.

After spending his one and only season in Queens, Loney decided to call it a career and retire after 11 of professional baseball.
