Mets Infielder Elects Free Agency

He only got into eight major league games in the 2022 season. 

Now, the New York Mets have released infielder Gosuke Katoh.

He's elected free agency.
The eight games this season were the first of Katoh's major league career, and he slashed .143/.400/.286, with three walks and two runs scored with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays waived Katoh early in the season before he was claimed off waivers in May by the New York Mets. He spent the rest of the season in the minor leagues.

For his minor league career, the twenty-eight-year-old holds a .254/.353/.740 slash line, with 55 home runs, 318 RBIs and 95 stolen bases across 2,845 at-bats.

Katoh is a former 2nd-round pick by the New York Yankees in the 2013 MLB Draft. 

He won't land anything more than a minor-league contract this offseason.
