Alex Cora is finally official, being announced to a one-year, $2 million deal by the Mets. The veteran infielder, 33, can play any where in the infield save catcher.
Cora will give manager Jerry Manuel a quality rest for David Wright and Jose Reyes. I know what most of you are thinking: He’ll most likely spend a lot of time at second base.
Cora hit .270 last year at Boston, so he’s not automatic out.
Said GM Omar Minaya: “You win championships with a 25-man roster.”
