MMN‘s Jacob Resnick reports the New York Mets have re-signed Jeff Glenn to a minor league deal. This marks the third straight offseason Glenn was re-signed by the organization.

This is part of what’s been a busy offseason for Glenn as he served as a groomsman in Steven Matz‘s wedding.

The 26 year old catcher was the Mets 2009 ninth round draft pick.

With Glenn serving as the backup and third catcher the past two seasons in Triple-A, he has only played in 24 games total. Glenn appeared as a catcher in only 13 of those games.

Last year, Glenn hit .234/.321/.340 with a homer and six RBI in 18 games played.

    A little odd that they keep releasing him only to re-sign him again. Why not just re-sign him as soon as the season ends? And they already have a throw-away catcher in Tyler Moore. Makes me wonder if Moore is finally retiring as he’d almost done last year. Or if Lobaton has an opt-out date in his minor league contract.

    Wonder what Glenn gets paid (can’t be much), and how he can afford to keep (barely) playing.

  • Nessim Toledano

    Standard AAA contracts usually pay $2500 to $4000 per month.
    When he was drafted, the Mets agreed to pay for eight semesters of college in addition to his $150K signing bonus. He may have more income in the off season.

    Thanks, News in.

    They don’t release him. He just becomes a free agent each year cuz he’s got more than 7 years in minors.

  • Nessim Toledano

    I’m well aware of the free agency rules. But that is not what happened here.
    When a minor leaguer becomes eligible for and declares free agency, the transaction is reported as “declared free agency”. Afterwards, his player profile page on milb.com lists his status “Free agent”.
    But in Glenn’s case, the report said he was released. They didn’t need to take that action since he was, as you’ve pointed out, eligible for free agency anyway. His player profile page then listed (and still lists) his status as “Released”.
    Phillip Evans, who became a free agent then re-signed was never rport5ed as ‘released”.
