Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on April 22, 2014

When the real issue is to make your passion come true, is never too late to make a triumphant return, and as a living example of this, Bob Abreu (40), has returned to the big leagues wearing the uniform of the New York Mets.

The club (NY Mets) took out Abreu from Las Vegas Triple-A before last monday night game against St. Louis Cardinals. Abreu was not on the lineup that started the game against the Cardinals.

Abreu was not in the majors since 2012. At that time, he played 100 games in combination with the Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels. This year, he started the preseason with Philadelphia, but the team discharge the baseball player from his functions in late march. A few days later, he signed a minor league deal with the Mets.

Bob Abreu batted .395 with a homerun and 9 RBIs in 15 games with Las Vegas. He has been elected to play in All-Star's Game twice and holds a pair of Golden Gloves on his resume.

Terry Collins, manager from NY Mets, said that Abreu will be mainly used as a pinch hitter. However, he will probably appears in the games at the very first moments, with the intention to have him tuned with the game progress of NY Mets and continues with good results. He will appear as a designated hitter in different games at American League parks, in order to have him in a good physical shape.
