Michael Conforto is once again property of a professional baseball team, the San Francisco Giants. While the Giants have had quite the rough offseason, they did end up landing a outfielder.
Conforto signed a two year deal worth $36M. Not at all bad, especially for someone that hasn’t played a full season due to a shoulder injury during practice.
The Seattle, Washington native will obviously be much closer to home on the west coast after spending 7 seasons in New York. Conforto was drafted by the Mets in the first round of the 2014 June Amateur Draft.
Throughout his career, the left handed bat slashed .255/.356/.468/.824 in 2551 at-bats. He also slugged 141 doubles and 132 home runs with 396 RBI’s.
The slugger will join former Mets boppers, Wilmer Flores and J.D. Davis.
