Alfonso Comes Full Circle, Signs Minor League Deal With Mets
The Mets signed infielder Edgardo Alfonzo, a star on their 2000 World Series team, to a minor league contract Saturday and assigned him to Triple-A Norfolk.
Alfonzo began the season with the Angels and batted .100 in 18 games before being released on May 21. He then signed a minor league contract with Toronto. He played 12 games with the Blue Jays, batted just .162, and was released June 12.
Alfonzo played for the Mets from 1995-2002 and is third on the team's career hits list with 1,136, seventh on the home run list with 120 and fifth on the RBIs list with 538. He batted .324 with 25 homers and 94 RBIs in 2000 when the Mets made the World Series and lost to the Yankees.
