The Mets have re-signed 3B Jose Reyes to a 1-year/$3 million contract, according to Ken Rosenthal.
The 34-year old struggled at the plate in the first half of 2017, hitting for a slash line of .215/.284/.370 with a wRC+ 74. However, Reyes bounced back in the second half, hitting for a line of .288/.356/.472 with a wRC+ of 121.
Despite his great offensive second half, Reyes has been a appalling defender. In 31 starts at third base in 2017, Reyes had a UZR of -2.9 and a dismal -5 DRS. Reyes is even worse when he plays at short, playing with -15 DRS in 71 starts.
Barring any more offseason acquisitions, Reyes will likely begin the season as the everyday 3B. There is also a good chance he will split starts at third base with Wilmer Flores and Asdrubal Cabrera, as they have done last season.
