Evans Hopes to Click with New Organization

BRADENTON — After spending the past eight seasons with the New York Mets, infielder Nick Evans decided to switch organizations this year. The 26-year-old infielder has spent parts of the last four seasons in the Majors with New York, posting a .256 career average over 159 big league games. This offseason, however, Evans was looking for a new opportunity, and after talking to the...

Pirates keep hitting the easy targets

The Pirates continued a busy but blah offseason by signing their third free agent, utilityman Nick Evans, out of minor league free agency Dec. 1. Evans, 25, made 45 appearances with the Mets last season, batting .256 -- to match his career average -- with four home runs.

Morning Grind: Mets Will Regret Letting Nick Evans Slip Away

Given the financial situation the Mets are currently in, holding on to a guy like Nick Evans should have been a no-brainer. Not only would Evans have been a quality bat and add much-needed depth to a very thin, not-so-Amazin’ roster, but come at a relatively inexpensive price. This 25-year old has been up and down from the minors so many times with the Mets that I don’t blame...

Pirates sign Nick Evans to minor league deal

The Bucs have signed former New York Met Nick Evans to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Evans, 25, is a right-handed first baseman/corner outfielder and hit .256/.305/.407 in 159 games over four years in New York.  The Mets recently took him off their 40-man roster. This is an interesting move and adds to an option for the Pirates at first base for 2012. Assuming...

Nick Evans Era Is Over

Nick Evans is gone. Off to Pittsburgh. Evans was the type of player who always seemed always "just about ready" who always seemed like a go to option from the minors to fill in a hole in the majors. The problem was there was always a player who seemed more attractive, more interesting than Evans. A player we wanted to see more of, when compared to Evans. So, constantly...

Evans signs with Pirates

Photo by Michael Baron The Nick Evans torture treatment has finally come to an end, Evans probably should have been a regular on the bench for the last three seasons.  Instead Evans was the first option to be sent down or placed on options.  For whatever reason Nick was under appreciated in the Mets organization and was never given a fair chance. Pittsburgh is the perfect landing...

Nick Evans Leaves Mets Behind (Finally)

The Mets have lost two players in the last few days who spent much of the season either with the Mets, or shuttling back and forth between Flushing and Buffalo. Jason Pridie signed with the Oakland A's after clearing waivers. Pridie chose to become a free agent, and wasn't unemployed for very long. Pridie played well defensively in both RF and CF; a much better outfielder...

Is Nick Evans the next Heath Bell?

Last Friday the Mets outrighted Jason Pridie and Nick Evans to Triple-A. They could have accepted the assignment or elected free agency. They both chose free agency. A day later Pridie signed a minor league deal with the Oakland A’s. Pridie was just an OK player for the Mets, but he’s easily replaceable and won’t be missed too much. Now it’s time to see where Evans ends...

Mets Notes: Mets Assign Evans and Pridie To Buffalo, Ike Davis Feeling Good
