Sandy Alomar Jr. is in Mets camp, but he'll be a catching instructor, replacing Tom Nieto.
We imagine that Alomar would happily continue his career if someone wanted him, but there's a good chance that he's done at age 41. He received just 22 at-bats with the Mets last season and hasn't had more than 150 since 2003. Fri, Feb 15, 2008 12:28:00 PM

Sandy Alomar Jr. has cleared waivers and will report to Double-A Binghamton.

Binghamton's season is over on Monday so Alomar will be able to rejoin the Mets Tuesday without the required 10-day stay in the minors.

Mets designated catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. for assignment.

He goes to make room for Paul Lo Duca's return on Monday. If Alomar clears waivers, it's expected that he'll rejoin the Mets on Sept. 1.

Mets designated catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. for assignment.

The initial report said Anderson Hernandez was getting optioned to Triple-A, but he stays on roster for the moment and Alomar goes to make room for Moises Alou. Either way, the Mets had a couple of very expendable players on their roster. Alomar was 2-for-6 in 23 days with the Mets.

Mets purchased the contract of catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. from Triple-A New Orleans.

Perhaps a brief glimpse of the farewell tour for Alomar? He's only likely to stick around for a few days now, but he should be back to act as the third catcher in September.

Sandy Alomar Jr. will report to Triple-A New Orleans to begin the season.

The 40-year-old Alomar will likely play a month or two in New Orleans. If he starts hot someone might be desperate enough to add him as a backup.

Mets signed catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

It seems like the Mets are mostly doing Alomar a favor. He's not going to beat out Ramon Castro for a backup job, but maybe he'll have a decent enough spring that someone else will want him. If not, there's always coaching.

Free agent Sandy Alomar Jr. hopes to stay in Chicago, but he hasn't heard from the White Sox since early November.

"There's nothing definite yet," agent John Boggs said. "We got some feelers (from other teams). It seems that if it's going to get done, it will get done later. But again when you're at this point in your career and looking for a job, it's kind of unsettling that you don't know where you'll be the following year." The White Sox have been trying to upgrade behind A.J. Pierzynski, with multiple reports suggesting they were trying for Brewers backup Damian Miller.

18-year veteran Sandy Alomar Jr. intends to play another season in 2007.

Not only has Sandy outlasted Roberto, but it looks like he'll be doing so by three years. "Next year probably will be the last, but I keep saying that every year," the catcher said. "If somebody gave me the opportunity, I'd like to back somebody up -- preferably in a winning organization. I love the game, and I haven't had that closure because I don't have the ring. So I want to do that. And if the opportunity is there, I'm willing to take a chance."

Sandy Alomar Jr. was 0-for-3 Tuesday as his slump continues.

Alomar was batting almost .325 with the Dodgers, but is now just 3-for-22 in a White Sox uniform. He stranded three runners Tuesday, two of which were in scoring position. We didn't exactly expect him to add much to the Chisox, but this is ridiculous.

White Sox acquired catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. from the Dodgers for RHP B.J. LaMura.

We thought the White Sox might upgrade from Chris Widger. Instead, they acquired Alomar. The 40-year-old was hitting .323, but most of that came in the first two weeks. He's 9-for-39 since April 20. He hasn't walked in 62 at-bats this season, and his last homer came in 2004. Since he's also probably not a defensive upgrade from Widger these days, this is a sideways move at best. At least they didn't give up much. LaMura, 25, had a 1.69 ERA and a 67/31 K/BB ratio in 53 1/3 IP for Double-A Birmingham this season. It'd be a surprise if he turned into a quality reliever.

The Dodgers plan to carry three catchers after acquiring Toby Hall in Tuesday's four-player deal, meaning that Sandy Alomar Jr. will keep his roster spot.

Amazingly enough, Alomar is hitting .352 in 54 at-bats. The Dodgers will use him as a pinch-hitter mostly now. They shouldn't be expecting much.

Sandy Alomar Jr. is scheduled to make his first start in a week Wednesday against the Astros.

Alomar hasn't played since leaving last Wednesday's game with leg cramps.
