The Mets announced on Twitter that they have signed outfielder Nick Plummer to a major league contract. Plummer was one of the most sought after minor league free agents avaliable and with the Mets lack of outfield depth, it’s a logical fit.
The 2015 first round pick from the Cardinals spend his entire minor league career in the Cardinals organization. The 25 year old had a strong season between AA and AAA, hitting .280/.415/.479 with 15 homeruns and 54 runs batted in. Plummer has a career .363 OBP in the minors, but most promising last year was his increase in slugging percentage.
The Mets will put Plummer on the 40 man roster. In 2021, Plummer played all 3 outfield positions, which is needed in the depth charts. He will join Brandon Nimmo, Dom Smith, Khalil Lee, Jeff McNeil and Mark Payton as the only outfielders on the 40 man roster.
