The Mets and outfielder Josh Reddick are closing in on a minor-league deal. The veteran outfielder was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier in the week after slashing .258/.285/.371 in 158 plate appearances.
If Reddick sticks with the club for the remainder of the season, the 34-year old would indeed be eligible for the playoffs, should the Mets make it.
Reddick will join outfielders Albert Almora jr, Mason Williams, and Khalil Lee in the organization. While the Mets do have some depth, Reddick is probably the team’s best offensive option of the bunch.
Throughout 4408 career at-bats, Reddick owns a .262/.321/.426/.747 slash line.
