Mets add outfielder in Mayberry Jr.
The Mets have reportedly signed outfielder John Mayberry Jr. to a Major League contract, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSPorts.com.
Mayberry was non-tendered by the Blue Jays earlier this month, making him a free agent. The Phillies traded him to Toronto at the non-waiver Trade Deadline in August. In 78 games between the Phils and Jays, Mayberry hit .212 with seven home runs and 10 doubles.
A first-round pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, Mayberry has a lifetime .208 average over six Major League seasons. He can play all three outfield positions, as well as first base.
