Mets Add Middle Infielder

The Mets latest addition, middle infielder Chin-lung Hu, can hit — in the minor leagues. In eight Minor League seasons with six different teams in the Dodger organization, Hue averaged .299. Last season, in Triple-A, he hit .317 with only 16 strikeouts in 223 plate appearances. Unfortunately, with the Dodgers he only hit .191 during four trials with the team. As the Mets only gave up a minor league pitcher who was unlikely to make the Mets roster to get Hu, the trade is a low-risk transaction, another move by Alderson that further adds to the glut of middle infielders that the Mets have been accumulating.
