The Mets have reportedly signed first baseman Dariel Gomez to a minor-league deal, adding some organizational depth at the position.
Gomez, 26, spent last year in the Mariners system at High-A Everett, where he slashed .222/.321/.472 with a Northwest League-leading 26 home runs, 65 RBI, and 163 strikeouts in 113 games. He has played 164 games at that level over the last two seasons, his high-water mark.
Originally an international free agent signing of the Cardinals back in December 2013, the lefty hitter has slashed .249/.353/.437 with 55 homers and 235 RBI in 449 games across seven minor-league seasons in the Cards and Mariners organization.
