Wait, Who is Cory Sullivan?
Back in January we signed Cory Sullivan to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training.
With all the hooplah (in my house, there was hooplah) around the possible Willy T. signing that didn’t happen; I got curious about this extra outfielder. Yes, extra still meaning in addition to Jason Michaels.
You may remember Sullivan as a Rockie. If you followed the team at all in 2005 or 2006, then you would. He was the starting center fielder for the Rox. This changed in 2007, when (of course!) Willy T. arrived to camp. Sullivan lost the job and hasn’t played a full season since. (He was signed to a major league deal by the Mets in ’09, playing in 64 games but taking the field in only 46.)
His transaction history on espn.com looks like this:
|January 20, 2010||Signed to a minor league contract|
|March 27, 2009||Sent to minors|
|August 14, 2008||Sent to minors|
|July 29, 2008||Purchased from minors|
|June 13, 2008||Outrighted to minors|
|June 06, 2008||Sent to minors|
|May 25, 2008||Called up from minors|
|March 28, 2008||Sent to minors|
So, who is Cory Sullivan? Another guy at camp, I guess.
Games start Thursday!
