Harris played last season with the Mets, hitting .246 with two homers and a .668 OPS in 283 plate appearances, and reportedly drew interest from the Nationals earlier this offseason.
Harris is a career .240 hitter with little power, but he draws lots of walks and has posted an on-base percentage above .340 in four of the past five seasons. Toss in the 33-year-old’s ability to play anywhere but catcher and shortstop defensively and he’s a useful player to have on the bench.
