CBS Sports reported on the 13th (Korean time) that the Mets had processed Almonte as a designated for assignment (DFA). Excluded from the Mets’ 40-man roster, Almonte’s future has been questioned. Almonte, who signed a minor league contract with the Mets in December of last year, played four games before being called up to the big leagues on the 8th and DFA. He has a batting average of 0.091 (1 hit in 11 at-bats).
Almonte signed a contract with LG in December last year for a total of $800,000 (1.1 billion won, $100,000 down payment, $400,000 annual salary, and $300,000 in incentives). However, during the medical test stage in the US, his contract was withdrawn. He then wore a Mets uniform to continue his career in the United States.
Almonte, from the Dominican Republic, played 11 years in the Major League (MLB). His career results are a batting average of 0.235 (288 hits in 1228 at-bats), 24 home runs and 118 RBIs in 458 games. He played for eight clubs in the big leagues alone, including the San Diego Padres, Cleveland Guardians, Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks and Kansas City Royals.
Meanwhile, LG, which withdrew its contract with Almonte, signed a contract with Austin Dean. As of the 12th, Austin has played in 94 games and has a batting average of 0.294 (106 hits in 361 bats) with 14 home runs and 68 RBIs. He had an OPS of 0.829, a combined on-base percentage (0.358) and slugging percentage (0.471).
