Ruben Gotay joins Steve Register on waivers. It’s hard to believe that the Mets like Fernando Tatis for a utility role over Gotay. He was clearly upset by the news as reported by MLB.com:
“I thought I did a good job last year,” Gotay told multiple news outlets, including the New York Post and Daily News, on Thursday morning. “I didn’t deserve this.”
I like Gotay and think he had good potential. Hopefully, he’ll get picked up and have a chance to make a contribution with another team. If not, maybe he’ll be back in the minors for the Mets.
Tatis’ career is very checkered. He didn’t play in the majors in 2004-2005, and 2007. This move really puzzles me. I hope Omar Minaya knows something that I don’t.
