Report: Mets re-sign Quintanilla
After seeing a good amount of playing time last year because of the injury to shortstop Ruben Tejada, the Mets have brought back Omar Quintanilla on a minor league deal, ESPN.com’s Adam Rubin reported Saturday.
At this point, the Mets are expected to go with Tejada as their starter — unless they sign another shortstop, like Stephen Drew — but Quintanilla can provide insurance at the premium position.
In 95 games last year, Quintanilla hit .222 with a .306 on-base percentage.
