Mets sign Anthony Seratelli of New Jersey to minor league deal

USA TODAY Sports

Mike Baxter is gone, but the Mets have acquired another local product.

The New York Mets have signed Anthony Seratelli, who went to Old Bridge High School in New Jersey, to a minor league contract. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the 30-year-old Seratelli was a highly-sought-after minor league free agent.

Seratelli's professional career started in independent ball in 2006. From 2007 through 2013, Seratelli played in the Royals' minor league system, though he never cracked the team's major league roster. He hit .273/.395/.413, a slash line that was still good for a 118 wRC+ in the Pacific Coast League. He was even more valuable at the plate in 2012, as he hit 17 home runs with a .374 OBP and 123 wRC+.

Defensively, Seratelli spent most of his time in right field in 2013, but he made appearances at first, second, third, and shortstop, too. Combined with the ability to get on base, that kind of flexibility might give Seratelli a shot at making the Mets' roster to begin the 2014 season.
