Mets add 2 to 40-man roster, and bring back reyes

As the arbitration deadline neared the Mets, among other teams made a flurry of moves. To avoid arbitration with Duaner Sanchez the Mets signed him to a one year deal worth almost $1,7 million.

Additionally the Mets are bringing back recently released Argenis Reyes to a minor league deal. Reyes who filled in last year while Damion Easley and Luis Castillo suffered from injuries will get a shot during spring training but has two other second basemen to compete with in a potentially healthy Luis Castillo and newly signed Alex Cora.

Lastly, according to the Denver post the Mets have come to an agreement on a major league contract worth $600,000 plus possible incentives with former Rockies’ outfielder Cory Sullivan. Sullivan who saw limited playing time last year is likely to be thrown into the outfield mix, and probably become the CF backup as Endy Chavez was traded earlier in the offseason.
