While much of the attention on the Mets recently has been centered around the team looking into outfield help, they ended up adding some infield depth on Saturday.
According to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com, Eduardo Nunez is joining the Mets as a non-roster invite to spring training.
Nunez, 32, is a 10-year major-league veteran. Debuting with the Yankees in 2010, Nunez played his first four seasons in pinstripes. As a utility player for the Yankees, Nunez played in 270 games, slashing .267/.313/.379 with 10 home runs and 76 RBI.
The versatile Nunez then spent his next two and a half seasons with the Minnesota Twins, making his only All-Star appearance in 2016 before being traded to the San Francisco Giants at that season's trade deadline.
He's spent his last three seasons with the Boston Red Sox, and while he helped the Sox win a World Series title in 2018 as a key bench piece, he had a poor season in 2019, compiling just a .548 OPS and struggling on defense as well in just 60 games played.
If Nunez was to earn a spot on the Mets' 2020 roster, it would likely be as a pinch-hitting specialist, though he could also fill in at any of the infield spots if needed.
