Mets Sign DJ Stewart To Minor-League DealFebruary 02, 2023 | 03:56 PM
The New York Mets signed free-agent outfielder DJ Stewart to a minor-league deal on Thursday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Stewart was taken in the first round (25th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2015, and he spent his first five seasons with the team. He managed to play in only three big-league games for the O's in 2022 due to injuries, and he has a career slash line of .213/.327/.400 with a .728 OPS, 26 home runs, 73 RBI, 75 runs scored and three stolen bases in 195 games over his five seasons. The 29-year-old left-handed hitter possesses some raw power, but he'll strictly serve as organizational outfield depth for the Mets in 2023.
