Mets give Alomar Jr. chance to make roster, $700,000
The 40-year-old catcher, expected to report to spring training Tuesday, hit .278 with 30 RBIs in 108 at-bats last season with the Dodgers and Chicago White Sox, who acquired him July 23. Alomar would get a $700,000, one-year contract if added to the major league roster.
A six-time All-Star, Alomar was the 1990 AL Rookie of the Year. His father is starting his second year as the Mets' third-base coach. His brother, Roberto, struggled with the Mets during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
