From John Fay:
Gary Matthews Jr. can opt out of his contract if heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not in the major leagues by July 24. Matthews is hitting .310/.355/.494 after 87 at-bats in Triple-A Louisville. But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no lock that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be called up.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re still evaluating him,Ã¢â‚¬Â Walt Jocketty said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We sent someone down there to look at him this week.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Matthews, 35, is a switch-hitter who can play any of the three outfield positions. Matthews hit .190 in 56 at-bats this year before being released by the Mets. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a .257 hitter over 12 big league seasons.
So, think he’ll opt out and go elsewhere?
