The Mets have signed Wily Mo Pena to a minor league deal. Pena had refused a minor league assignment with the Washington Nationals during spring training so I thought it was interesting that he’d accept a minor league deal here. Turns out that there is a clause in the contract that allows him to opt out if he is not promoted to the major league club within two months. I have no clue what Pena gives the Mets beyond injury & Gary Sheffield insurance.
