Damion Easley was a solid contributor to the Mets for two seasons, the team was wise to pass on the 39 year old, for a younger version of the same player in Alex Cora.

But with both Cora and Reyes out, leaving the job to Ramon Martinez and Fernado Tatis, even at his advanced baseball age, Easley would be an upgrade.
Over two seasons, Easley played 189 games in which the right hander batted .275 with 70 RBI's and 16 HR's.
During his time with the Mets, Easley was primarily a second baseman (103 gms.), but last year he played eight games at short and did not record an error. He also played the corner outfield, third base, and first base.
Easley is currently a free agent and would be a quick fix/stop gap type of signing, and once Reyes is healthy, he is a professional veteran that's a welcome addition around the clubhouse.
