New York Mets Sign Outfielder

The New York Mets have added some outfield depth to their spring training roster, signing former San Francisco Giant and Boston Red Sox outfielder Jaylin Davis to a minor league contract.

Davis gets an invite to spring training.

The 28-year-old hasn't had a ton of success in his limited big league trials, but he did arrive with a blast in San Francisco in 2019: 

As noted by a New York Times staffer, Davis became the first Giants player to hit a walk-off home run for his first major league homer since 1971.

He's hit only one other dinger, however, in his 38 total games in the bigs over the last four years. He's posted a .207 average with a .573 OPS. He spent last season with the Red Sox. 

He had a tremendous minor league season in 2019, hitting 35 homers with a .987 OPS. He hasn't yet been able to duplicate that success in the majors.
