Chris Coste- #3.
6'1", 210 pounds
37 years old.
5th major league season.
Throws R/Bats R
The Good: A Baseball "lifer", has spent 13+ years in the minors/independent ball. Well liked and respect. Student of the game. Had a good 2008 season with the Phillies, with 9 HRs, and .423 slugging %. Also filled in at 1B last year with the Astros.
The Bad: Not very strong defensively, and then slugged only .252 last year between the Phillies and Astros.
Role: Mentoring Josh Thole in AAA/emergency catcher if Mets catchers get hurt in bunches like last year.
Not going to give a projection due to a projected < 100 at bats at the major league level.
Links to the scouting reports for the Mets likely 2 major league catchers.
