After being non-tendered on Monday evening to make room on the 40-man roster for free-agent acquisition Jon Rauch, outfielder Mike Baxter is back with organization.

The Mets announced that Baxter has agreed to a minor-league deal to remain with the club and also received an invitation to spring training.

The Queens native batted .235 in 22 games for the Mets last season.
