2 former Mets will be playing with new teams come the 2011 season. Catcher Omir Santos, who refused a assignment to triple A and was released by the Mets was signed to a minor league deal with the Detroit Tigers. Santos who was named to the Topps Rookie All Stars last year didnt have any at bats with the Mets in 2010 and hit pretty a paltry .160 for the Mets in the Minors with the Bisons and the Binghamtom club.
JJ Putz signed a 2 year deal pending a physical with the Diamond Backs to most likely be there closer. Putx worked in the White Sox pen last year. The new deal is close 10M over 2 years with an option.
