The Mets have claimed 1B/OF Jordan Patterson off waivers from the Rockies and added him to their 40-man roster, the team announced Monday.
With the addition of Patterson, the Mets now have 39 players on their 40-man roster.
Patterson, 26, hit .271/.367/.525 with 23 homers and 26 doubles in 118 games in 2018 for Triple-A Albuquerque after hitting 26 homers in 131 games for Albuquerque in 2017.
His only major league appearance came in 2016, when he played 10 games for the Rockies.
During his six-year minor league career, Patterson has hit .285/.365/.504 with 107 homers in 678 games.
The lefty-hitting Patterson will almost certainly open the season with Triple-A Syracuase if he remains with the Mets through the offseason.
