CBS Sportsline is reporting that the Mets re-signed 34 year old outfielder Raul Gonzalez today to a minor league contract. He played for the Mets in 2002-03. He was playing in the Mexican League until being released last month. He’ll go to extended spring training in Port St. Lucie and then Triple-A New Orleans.
Don’t expect to see him with the big club barring disaster in the outfield. He’s a deep insurance policy.
