Abreu gets first start since '12; Grandy sits

NEW YORK -- Bobby Abreu turned 40 in March. When he plays right field Thursday afternoon for the Mets, it will be the first time he has started a major league game in 21 months. The plan is that he won't go two years before his next start. But it likely won't be two days, either. The Mets brought Abreu to the big leagues with the idea of using him mostly as an experienced bat off the bench. Manager Terry Collins strongly believes he'll help a team that has been offensively challenged so far.

After year off, Bobby Abreu returns to baseball and major leagues with Mets

The Mets hope he can be an occasional spot starter in the outfield and a left-handed pinch hitter. Having accrued a .396 OBP over the course of his career, the team feels his hitting philosophy matches their own -- so he can be a mentor for teammates as well.

NEW YORK -- Bobby Abreu spent last season at home in Venezuela, out of baseball. Then, around the MLB All-Star break, he started training for the winter-ball season in his native country, trying to revive his career. He certainly caught the eye of Mets hitting coach Dave Hudgens, who managed him with Caracas during the winter-ball season. Hudgens recommended the Mets sign Abreu, although Abreu instead selected the Philadelphia Phillies. Adam RubinBobby Abreu joined the Mets on Monday at Citi Field.

Brown demoted to clear spot for Abreu

Andrew Brown #30 LFNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM10 HR1 RBI5 R4 OBP.233 AVG.185 NEW YORK -- Andrew Brown was shipped to Triple-A Las Vegas before Monday's series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals, clearing the roster spot for the promotion of Bobby Abreu. Brown was hitting .185 with one homer and five RBIs in 27 at-bats. The Mets decided to have the lefty-hitting Abreu replace the righty-hitting Brown over the lefty-hitting Kirk Nieuwenhuis, so Nieuwenhuis likely survives until Juan Lagares returns from the disabled list.
