Veteran outfielder Bobby Abreu has 17 years of professional baseball experience under his belt. The man just turned 40 years old on March 11, so how much is left in the tank for Abreu?
Well according to his stats at Triple-A Las Vegas, the man has quite a bit of baseball left. New York Posts own Mike Puma is reporting that Abreu is currently hitting .500 at the Triple-A level for the New York Mets. New York should be keeping a close eye on him as time goes on, especially if he’s putting up the same numbers.
Abreu signed a Minor League contract with the New York Mets earlier this month, has the option to opt out of the deal on on April 30. He was cut by the Philadelphia Phillies during Spring Training, a team who he spent eight and a half years of his career with.
If this is the end of the road for Bobby Abreu, he’ll finish his career with 287 home runs, 1,349 RBI’s and a career batting line of .292/.396/.477.
