Mets Sign Alex Cora

New, comments

Per WEEI, the Mets have signed infielder Alex Cora to a one-year, $2 million deal. Cora doesn't hit much (his .375 OBP last year looks like an aberration), but he can play shortstop and the Mets are counting on him giving Jose Reyes the occasional breather next year. Cora has historically been a very good fielder (UZR bears this out, though he was below average last year), has very little power, but actually gets hit by pitches often enough to suggest something more than happenstance.
