Bobby Abreu Newsbeat

Friday, September 26, 2014

Mets outfielder Bobby Abreu, former All-Star and Gold Glove winner, retires

I wonder what Kevin Stocker is doing now?

Bobby Abreu’s illustrious 18 year career is coming to an end. The Mets outfielder announced today that he will retire.

Over the course of his career, Abreu was one of the best hitters in baseball. He’s hit .291 in his career with a .395 on-base percentage. This season, only Victor Martinez, Andrew McCutchen and Jose Bautista have posted an OBP higher than that.

Abreu signed with the Mets in April and has had two stints with them this season—his last stop in a career that began in Houston, then seven years in Philadelphia, then the Yankees, then the Dodgers and Angels.

Abreu was an All-Star in 2004 and 2005, and won a Gold Glove in 2005 as well.

He told reporters he would eventually like to become a hitting coach.

Mets add Bobby Abreu to roster, send down Andrew Brown

And Kyle Farnsworth is the new closer.  Richard Hidalgo is available…

The Mets have officially brought up Bobby Abreu to their major league roster, optioning down outfielder Andrew Brown as a corresponding move.

Abreu will serve as as a left-handed hitter off the bench…

Abreu hit .395 in 15 games at Triple-A in Las Vegas.

“He’s played very well at Vegas,” [GM Sandy] Alderson said. “And he’s a great hitting role model for our players. He’s a professional hitter and I think our guys can learn something from him.”
