Mets agree to terms with Ronny Cedeno

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that shortstop Ronny Cedeno and the New York Mets have agreed to a one-year, $1.15 million contract.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal, which also includes performance bonuses, is subject to a physical.

Cedeno, who turns 29 next month, hit .249 with two homers and 32 RBIs last year for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He figures to back up Ruben Tejada following the departure of All-Star Jose Reyes, who agreed to a six-year, $106 million deal with the Miami Marlins.

Ronny Cedeno close to signing with the Mets?

The Mets and free agent shortstop Ronny Cedeno have reached a critical point in their negotiations, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, they haven't agreed to a deal yet, but there could be a verdict soon, Rubin reports.

Andy McCullough of the Star Ledger tweets that the sides are nearing a deal and that Cedeno is still considering his options.

The Mets seek infield depth behind Ruben Tejada and have been linked to free agents such as Cedeno, Jack Wilson and Ryan Theriot.

The Pirates declined Cedeno's option earlier this offseason, after he posted a .249/.297/.339 line in 454 plate appearances. The Red Sox and Pirates were also linked to Cedeno earlier this offseason.
