The Mets and infielder Joey Wendle have agreed to a one-year deal, pending a physical, according to Robert Murray. The deal is for approximately $2 million, per Mark Feinsand.

Wendle made his major league debut with the A’s back in 2016, and after spending a couple of seasons there, he spent four with the Rays and the most recent two with the Marlins. In 318 plate appearances this year in Miami, Wendle hit .212/.248/.306 with two home runs and a 47 wRC+. Over the course of his major league career, he has a .263/.312/.386 line with a 92 wRC+.

Next year will be Wendle’s age-34 season, and he played shortstop exclusively this year, making 107 appearances there for the Marlins. In his time in the big leagues, he’s played a bit more second base and third base than shortstop. In his time with the Rays, he logged a small number of innings in the outfield, but he hasn’t played there since then.
