Mets Sign Ronny Cedeno

The Mets have announced the signing of free agent shortstop Ronny Cedeno.  The one-year deal is worth $1.2MM and includes several incentives.  Peter E. Greenberg & Associates represents Cedeno, who figures to provide depth behind Ruben Tejada in New York.

The Pirates declined Cedeno's option earlier this offseason, after he posted a .249/.297/.339 line in 454 plate appearances. The 28-year-old posted a strong 6.8 UZR/150 at shortstop this past season, though his career mark of -1.6 UZR/150 is slightly below average. The Red Sox and Pirates were linked to Cedeno earlier this offseason, while the Mets had interest in free agents such as Jack Wilson and Ryan Theriot.

ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reported last week that the two sides were close to a deal, with Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com adding the contract details (both Twitter links).
