Mets give tryout to injury prone catcher

JR House was once a top prospect in the Pirates system, however he has evolved into an incredibly injury prone player. In seven seasons the 25 year old fell victim to rib and abdominal injuries, a knee sprain, had mono and reconstructive surgery on his right elbow. His minor league numbers have been relativley impressive. In 2000 he hit .348 with 23 home runs and 90 rbi. House is also trying out for the Brewers and already has tried out for the Astros. It is unclear whether or not he can bounce back from his once valuable prospect status, but given the Mets lack of depth at catcher throughout the organization it's worth a try.
