Mets Free Agency Rumors 2012: New York Reportedly Has Deal With Ronny Cedeno

The New York Mets reportedly moved past the interest stage and have made a deal with veteran free agent shortstop Ronny Cedeno worth $1.1 million, as long as Cedeno passes his physical (via Adam Rubin's Twitter).

Cedeno was an everyday player at shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates for the last two seasons. Cedeno isn't much of an offense threat with these career numbers: 33 home runs, 196 RBI, .246 batting average and an on-base percentage of .286. His glove is what keeps him around and he can play solid defensively at shortstop or second base.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said about Cedeno, who could be picked up to backup Ruben Tejada:

"somebody who can play shortstop for us on a stopgap basis, but probably more importantly if Tejada, assuming he's playing there, were to get injured." (via NJ.com)
