The Rockies disposed of their expensive star SS to the Blue Jays and in part received Reyes (who had a short-lived stint with the Marlins at the end of the day), but had prospects around ready to play. So, after a recent domestic violence incident led to a suspension, Rockies let him go, eating a chunk of money since no team wanted him. So, Mets got him for chump change, but wary myself, the d.v. not helping. But, guess wait and see. ETA: Wary about Conforto last summer but thrived. After a good beginning, he's back to struggling rookie. So, to add to the spare parts, another rookie will replace him for awhile.
