Not exactly the outfield help Mets fans have been hoping for, but New York has signed Andrew Brown to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Brown spent part of last season with the Rockies after being claimed off waivers from the Cardinals, hitting .232 with a .730 OPS in 46 games, and the 28-year-old corner outfielder/first baseman has hit .296 with 44 homers, 45 doubles, and a .924 OPS in 207 career games at Triple-A.
If he makes the team it would likely be in a platoon role, getting most of his playing time versus left-handed pitching.
