The Mets have signed righty-hitting corner outfielder Andrew Brown to a minor league deal with a spring-training invite.
Brown, 28, has hit a combined .224 with five homers and 14 RBIs in 134 at-bats over two seasons in the majors, with the St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies. Twenty-four of his major league starts have come in right field, with the other nine in left field.
In the minors, Brown has appeared in 239 games at first base, 137 games in right field, 120 games in left field and 42 games at third base.
While he did put up nice numbers in Triple-A, he’s 28 and two teams have already given up on him.
It looks like the Mets will just go with a patchwork solution to their outfield with guys like Collin Cowgill and now Brown to go with Duda, Baxter, Nieuwenhuis and Valdespin.
