Infielder Sam Haggerty finished up his rehab start July 4th with three strikeouts in a 6-2 loss to the Aberdeen Ironbirds. During his rehab start, Haggerty hit .333 with four hits and two RBIs. His stint with the Cyclones began June 27 before rejoining Double-A Binghamton.
New to the organization, Haggerty was traded to the Mets in a deal with the Cleveland Indians. New York sent C Kevin Plawecki to Cleveland in return for RHP Walker Lockett and Haggerty. He was drafted in 2015 out of University of New Mexico and hit .311 his final year despite missing 30 games to an injury.
Before landing on the injured list this season to a hamstring injury, Haggerty was hitting .288 with 10 extra base hits and 8 RBIs. Back when Haggerty played with Cleveland he began the 2018 season with the Columbus Clippers (Triple-A, Cleveland Indians) before moving back down to the Akron RubberDucks (Double-A, Cleveland Indians).
CBS Sports noted that Haggerty has a good walk rate and has the ability to play all over the field. Before his injury he had 27 walks with 14 stolen bases, making it clear that Haggerty has the potential to get on base and be a threat.
