Mets Interested in Joe Panik


Recently DFA’d second baseman Joe Panik, a longtime San Francisco Giant, is soon to be on the market, and the Mets are interested in adding him, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.

It’s been a bad year for Panik, who’s accumulated a -.4 WAR this season, as he’s batted just .235 with a .310 OBP. But he has a proven track record, and as recently as 2017, he hit .288 with a .347 OBP, and he amassed 28 doubles.

For the league minimum, and to provide an obvious offensive upgrade from Luis Guillorme, this seems like a no-brainer. Panik attended John Jay High School in Hopewell Junction, and he went to college at St. John’s University.

Come home Joe…and you’ll finally be where you belong…in Panik City!
