The Mets have designated Almonte for assignment (DFA), CBS Sports reported on 13 July. Almonte’s removal from the Mets’ 40-man roster puts a question mark over his future. Almonte, who signed a minor league deal with the Mets last December, was called up to the big leagues on Aug. 8 and played in four games before being DFA’d. He is batting .091 (1-for-11).

Almonte signed with LG last December for a total of $800,000 (KRW 1.1 billion – $100,000 signing bonus, $400,000 salary, $300,000 incentive). However, the contract was cancelled during the medical testing phase in the US. He later signed with the Mets to continue his career in the United States.

Almonte, a native of the Dominican Republic, spent 11 years in Major League Baseball (MLB). He batted .235 (1228-for-288) with 24 home runs and 118 RBIs in 458 games. He played for eight different organisations in the big leagues, including the San Diego Padres, Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Kansas City Royals.

Meanwhile, after rescinding Almonte’s contract, LG signed Austin Dean. As of 12 December, Austin has played in 94 games, batting .294 (106-for-361) with 14 home runs and 68 RBIs. His on-base percentage (0.358) and slugging percentage (0.471) combined for an OPS of 0.829.
