Mets sign utility man Joey Wendle to 1-year contract

The New York Mets struck another deal after signing right-handed pitcher Luis Severino on Wednesday night.

The club signed utility man Joey Wendle to a one-year, $2 million contract with performance bonuses included, according to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Wendle, 33, struggled last season with the Miami Marlins, hitting just two home runs with a .554 OPS in 112 games.


The veteran put together his best season in 2021 with the Tampa Bay Rays when he hit a career-high 11 homers with 54 RBI over 136 contests, earning a spot on the American League All-Star team.

Wendle essentially replaces Luis Guillorme, who was non-tendered by the Mets earlier this month.
