According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, here, the Mets have signed 30 year old utility infielder Omar Quintanilla to a minor league deal. Quintanilla finished serving a suspension for 50 games at the beginning of this season for violating the “minor league drug prevention and treatment program.” That doesn’t sound good.
Here’s what the Mets got in this move:
That’s a pretty sweet offensive stat line he put up last season…
This signing obviously isn’t a big deal, as Quintanilla is most likely organizational depth. I just hope this doesn’t affect the Mets interest in other utility infield options such as Jack Wilson, Ryan Theriot or Ronny Cedeno.
