Mets Bring Back Johneswhy Fargas

The Mets brought back a fan favorite Thursday, resigning Johneswhy Fargas to a minor league deal! Fargas made a big impression in a small samplesize with the Mets and a lot of people are happy he is back.

Fargas made his major league debut with the Mets as a 27 year old. The Puerto Rico native batted .286/.286/.524 in just 7 games with the Mets. He showed speed and solid defense and a lot of energy in a time the Mets had a lot of issues with injuries. He got released when the Mets got some players back from the IL and the Cubs picked him up.

Fargas, has spend the most time of his career in the minors with a .677 OPS. So don’t expect the same type of numbers for Johneswhy as he did in his short stint with the Mets. However, he is fun to watch with his energy. If he has to fill in, you know he will play hard with all the energy he got.

Mets About to Call-Up Johneswhy Fargas

The Mets are reportedly calling up outfielder Johneswhy Fargas. With the injuries to Conforto and McNeil and move will likely be needed. Fargas isn’t on the 40 man roster, so a DFA is likely coming soon.

Fargas is hitting .241/.313/.414 with 1 homerun, three RBIs and 5 stolen bases in 7 games for Syracuse so far. The 26 year old can play all outfield spots.

Fargas impressed during both spring training for the Mets and made enough of an impression for a call up, with the Mets in desperate need of outfield help.
