If the Mets’ big splashes are over, the smaller ripples are on the way.
One of those came Monday, when the Mets announced they signed veteran outfielder Rajai Davis to a minor league contract with an invite to major league spring training.
Davis will provide depth to a very thin Mets outfield, which will be without Yoenis Cespedes for a large chunk of the season. Last year the team was nearing a Tim Tebow promotion. Such was and is the organizational depth at the position.
Davis, even at 38 and entering his 14th season, is a speed threat who makes consistent contact and plays the outfield well. Last year, in 101 games with Cleveland, he slashed .224/.278/.281 with 21 steals and one home run. Davis also has played with Boston, Oakland, Detroit, Toronto, San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
