Arguably the most popular player in the short history of the El Paso Chihuahuas franchise, power hitting utilityman Cody Decker has just signed a minor league contract with the Mets. He's capable of playing both corners in the infield and the outfield as well as being an emergency catcher.

According to Jon Heyman it's a done deal. I assume he's headed to join the 51s as their outfield is pretty thin right now until Michael Conforto gets banished back once again because they're afraid of hurting Curtis Granderson's ego. Furthermore he doesn't have the benefit of almighty veteran status, nor would they have to sacrifice a year of control once he spends 55 days sweating in the desert.
