NEW YORK (AP) — Former Washington Nationals outfielder Willie Harris and the Mets have agreed to a minor league contract.
The 32-year-old hit .183 with 10 homers and 32 RBIs in 132 games for Washington last season. He played all three outfield positions, plus third base.
Harris has a .239 batting average in parts of 10 seasons with the Orioles, White Sox, Red Sox, Braves and Nationals. He had a pinch-single in the eighth inning and scored the only run in Chicago’s 2005 World Series-clinching Game 4 victory over the Houston Astros.
The Mets said Monday that Harris was invited to big league spring training.
