The New York Mets signed infielder Jonathan Villar to a one-year, $3.55 million contract to add depth in their rotation.
MLB Network reported that the deal will carry additional incentives.
Villar will be a utility man for the Mets for the upcoming season, and he’s done that plenty of times throughout his career.
The 29-year-old was a member of the Marlins last season before being traded to the Blue Jays in August, and he batted .232/.301/.292 in 207 plate appearances.
Villar could also be used in the outfield, so the Mets may use him all over the field in 2021.
