Born: April 3, 1987 in Beaumont, TX

Departed: traded to the Cleveland Indians for Ryder Ryan, August 2017

This slugging outfielder is shown here on an orange refractor from the 2014 Topps set.  He was acquired from Cincinnati for the stretch run of 2016 with the expectation that he would be traded the following winter, but the Mets found no takers, and so he opened 2017 as the starting right fielder.  He played very well for the New Yorkers, becoming a popular figure on the field and in the clubhouse, finally being sent back to Ohio into another pennant race that August.  The next year found him back in the orange and blue, and he suffered the worst year of his career while battling injuries.   More cards are pictured below.
