As first reported by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Jose Reyes has signed a one-year deal with the New York Mets, pending a physical, to assume the role of a utility player on the team.

Reyes, who played in 145 games with the Mets last season, will look to continue off of the success he experienced in the second half of the season. After a rough start to the 2017 campaign, Reyes was able to salvage his season in the second half, during which he batted .288 with seven home runs, 29 RBIs, 14 stolen bases and a .356 OBP in 62 games. In total, he hit .246/.315/.413 on the season with a 91 OPS+.

In 2017 Reyes played games at shortstop, second base, third base, and even made two appearances as an outfielder.

The deal is reported to be worth $2 million with the potential to earn an additional $500,000 in incentives, as reported by Jon Heyman.
