The Jose Bautista experiment didn’t last long in Atlanta.  He was released after just 40 plate appearances.  The 37 year old hit just .142 with two homeruns and five RBIs.  

On Tuesday the New York Mets announced they were signing Bautista to a one year Major League deal and he would be available immediately.

Expect a more of the same out Bautista in the Big Apple.  His staring at the pitcher and bat flipping days are over.
