Report: Mets have interest in Jose Bautista

Jose Bautista bat flip

Jose Bautista’s MLB career may not be over just yet.

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets have shown interest in the 37-year-old former Toronto Blue Jay, who was released by the Atlanta Braves after just 40 underwhelming plate appearances.

The Braves had tried to use Bautista at third base, but he hit .143 in limited duty with two home runs, and his defense wasn’t good enough to justify keeping the bat in the lineup. The Mets are clearly looking for a little bit of pop, and if they can find something left in Bautista, it can’t hurt.
