The New York Mets signed veteran outfielder Tommy Pham to a one-year deal on Tuesday, adding to their already busy winter.
Pham brings depth and is a batting threat, giving the Mets a fourth outfielder and an option as a right-hander at the designated hitter to complement southpaw Daniel Vogelbach.
The 34-year-old Pham played last season with the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox, finishing the year with a .236 batting average, 17 long balls, 63 RBI and .686 mpg. He scored 89 points in 144 games.
In career, the new Mets acquisition has a .259 batting average and hit 114 homers. Pham also has 97 stolen bases and .787 ERA in nine MLB seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, San Diego Padres, Reds and Red Sox.
