The Mets acquired catcher Jorge Fabregas along with Willie Blair from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Bernard Gilkey and Nelson Figueroa at the trading deadline in 1998. Fabregas would finish out the season with the Mets serving mainly as a backup to Mike Piazza. He appeared in 20 games and hit just .188 with 1 home run and 5 RBIs. His only home run came on August 12 against the St Louis Cardinals. It was a two-run shot in the 9th inning which pulled the Mets to within a single run. Mike Piazza than tied the game with a home run of his own, but the Mets would lose in extra innings.
Following the season the Mets traded Fabregas to the Florida Marlins.
