Mets Sign Desmond Jennings to Minor-League Contract


In a move that’s a little perplexing to me, the Mets have signed former Rays top prospect Desmond Jennings to a minor-league contract.

In seven years in the pros, the 30-year-old Jennings has hit .245 with a .322 OBP. His best year was in 2012, when he hit 13 homers, drove in 47 RBI and stole 31 bases. I understand his speed being attractive, but does he still have the same wheels he had five years ago?

I don’t see him making an impact, but I guess time will tell. Check below for Desmond Jennings robbing his now-teammate Jose Reyes of a hit.
