Mets sign Sierra to Minor League contract

John Delcos at The LoHud Mets Blog is reporting that the Mets have signed Ruben Sierra to a minor league contract.

The Mets announced they signed veteran outfielder Ruben Sierra to a minor league contract. Sierra, 41, is a .268 lifetime hitter with 306 homers and 1,322 RBI. He’s played with Texas, Oakland, the Yankees, Toronto, Cincinnati, Chicago White Sox, Detroit, Seattle and Minnesota.
Omar has a history with Sierra from their days together in Texas. Sierra will presumably be outfield insurance in the minor leagues. More importantly he will be a mentor to the young talented outfielders and hopefully some of his professional hitting will rub off on Milledge, Johnson, Gomez and Martinez.
