Mets sign Melky Cabrera, four others to 2020 player pool

The Mets signed former Yankee Melky Cabrera on Monday, and the 35-year-old outfielder is expected to be part of the team’s 60-player pool when spring training restarts this week.

Cabrera, who played four full seasons for the Yankees and was a part of their 2009 World Series team, most recently played for the Pirates.

The Mets also added another right-handed arm to their bullpen on Monday, signing Hunter Strickland, who was released by Washington in March….

The team also announced it had re-signed outfielder Ryan Cordell, who spent spring training with the Mets. Cordell, 28, had seven homers in 247 plate appearances with the White Sox last year. The Mets also re-signed RHP Erasmo Ramirez and added infielder Gordon Beckham.

Always good to see a Gordon Beckham sighting. He debuted the same day as Andrew McCutchen and clearly isn't at the same level, but he somehow still manages to find opportunities.

06.29... Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Monday that Tim Tebow (Draft Eligible) is still a consideration for the team's player pool.
Spin: Tebow was not on the initial list that the Mets released Sunday afternoon, but they do still have 10 open spots to fill. The former NFL quarterback, who turns 33 years old this August, batted just .163/.240/.255 over 264 plate appearances last season for the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse.

My favorite part of Gordon Beckham's career is that the White Sox traded him to the Angels for a player to be named later in August 2014. Anaheim sent that player to the Sox on February 4, 2015, a week after Beckham had returned to the White Sox as a free agent.

And the PTBNL actually panned out for the Sox - Yency Almonte didn't actually pitch for Chicago, but they traded him to CO for a good year and a half of Tommy Kahnle.
