Mets Ink Valentin To Minor League Deal

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have signed infielder Jose Valentin to a minor league contract.

Valentin will be invited to spring training and can earn $800K if he makes the squad.  He should provide adequate backup to Luis Castillo this season and could get a good amount of at-bats if Castillo continues to struggle.  Valentin was the Mets' starting second baseman in 2006, when he hit .271 and 18 home runs.
