The Mets have signed first baseman Brandon Allen to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training, the team announced on Twitter.
Allen slashed .267/.347/.478 with 17 homers as a 27-year-old with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate in 2013.
Once regarded as one of the best prospects in the White Sox organization, Allen has produced just a .203/.290/.375 slash line and 12 homers in 389 Major League plate appearances between the D-Backs, A's and Rays.
This could mean something, maybe the Mets are preparing to unload the boat with Ike Davis and Lucas Duda in it...
